Summer Shenanigans: A Community Gathering in Nature

posted Jun 22, 2016, 11:32 AM by Jonathan Poppele   [ updated Jun 22, 2016, 11:32 AM ]
Come join friends for a community picnic and outdoor fun to celebrate summer in scenic Theodore Wirth Park.

Saturday, July 9
2:30 - 9:00pm
Wirth Lake Picnic Area

Gather at Wirth Lake Picnic Area off Glenwood Ave at 2:30 pm to meet old friends and new acquaintances. Family-friendly activities starting at 3:00 pm will include
games, animal gaits, hands-on primitive skills, and evening music!

Of course, what would a summer picnic be without a cookout? We’ll fire up the charcoal grill around 5 PM, and sit down to eat around 6 PM. Musical instruments are welcome. The evening will wrap up around 9:00 pm.

What should I bring?

  • Side dish to share
  • Something to grill
  • Camp chair or lawn chair
  • Dishes/utensils/cups for picnicking
