Join us at New Quarter Park this Saturday for our Movie in the Park: “Trolls World Tour”. Branch and Poppy come across six tribes of trolls, each practicing different styles of music. It is then up to the duo to untie and protect the other kingdoms of trolls when their musical styles are threatened by the sinister heavy metal couple King Trash and Queen Barb.
Movie begins roughly 15 minutes after sunset. Concessions will be available for purchase during the movie. Please bring blanket and/or chair(s). The second race of the Weekend on Your Wheel Youth Bike Race Series is this Sunday, May 2!
The first race was a huge hit and we hope to see even more of you this Sunday. Kids ages 3 to 18 can register to race at our park’s specially designed mountain bike trail for children. The fee is $10 for a single race day. You may register online through April 30. All participants will receive a number plate for their bikes. Race #3 is May 8 and the rain date is May 16.
