Concert – Sunday in the Park – July 23rd Noon-4pm

A long standing Rose Park Neighborhood tradition! Spending a Sunday afternoon at our Rose Park (8th & Orizaba). This year featuring folk group Brother Pines, joined by their opening band. Council Member Jeannine Pearce is co-hosting and will be on hand – officiating at the water balloon toss!

Sunday July 23rd from Noon to 4pm. We have planned:

Potato Sack Races – officiated by Rebuilding Together LB, the group that implemented ‘Light the Night’ around the park.

Watermelon Eating Contest – organized by SAFE Refuge – who are known watermelon eating competitors!

Water Balloon Toss – Council Member Pearce does the honors at the Toss.

Also – a  Games Area with bocci ball and bean bag toss. So start putting together your family teams!

Just across the street – blocked off between Orizaba and Gladys will be the 8th St. Block Party.  Gather there to meet neighbors and get some wonderful treats catered by Red Leprechaun.

8th St and Gladys come Together as a Block

Several residents, Max, Dana, Dennis, and Tracy on 8th St. and Gladys have been connecting over common interests and with a bit of inspiration are hosting their first block party on July 23rd from noon-4pm. That single block between Orizaba and Gladys will be ‘blocked off’. Permit is in hand. What was inspired is the block party will be going on simultaneously with RPNA’s annual park event “Sunday in the Park” – just steps away. This year featuring Brother Pines. Come out and meet neighbors, listen to cool folk music and if you’d like you can catch a bite of great food catered by the Red Leprechaun.
