The plans for our Spring Festival on May 19 are progressing.
We are happy to announce that in addition to the raffle, the flea market, live music by Kenn Kweeder, and kids’ activities, this year we will be having food trucks that will be donating a portion of their proceeds to the park that day. At this point we have commitments from:
Rival Brothers Coffee
Zsa’s Ice Cream
Also, although Nomad Pizza had a scheduling conflict, they will be donating 20 percent of the proceeds from their restaurant at 611 S. 7th Street until 6 p.m. on May 19 to the park.
Do not forget to put Cianfrani Park Spring Festival on your calendar for May 19, 2012.

And … Celebrate with us at our neighborhood Spring Festival On May 19. There will be live music by Kenn Kweeder, a flea market, food trucks, kids activities, a bake table and a raffle.
As you may know, we are beginning to plan for our Spring Festival to be held on Saturday, May 19, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Not only is this a wonderful neighborhood event, but it will help us raise some money to continue to make park improvements and support other events we hope to have. Activities will include live music, food trucks, flea market, raffle, bake table, children’s entertainment, and much more.
We will need several volunteer helpers if the festival is to be a success. Our first planning meeting is next Tuesday, March 20, 2012, at Cianfrani Park at 6:30 p.m. If you are willing to help but cannot attend the meeting, just send an email reply to firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know and we will be in touch with you.
We will need help with: publicity, fundraising, raffle coordination and solicitation of prizes, organizing food trucks, baked goods table, children’s activities, set-up and clean-up, etc. If you have any suggestion or new idea for the festival, please pass it on to us.
The March meeting of Cianfrani Park will be next Tuesday, March 6 at 7 p.m. at Palumbo Rec. Center 10th and Fitzwater Streets. On the agenda will be:
