The organizers of St. Anthony Park’s annual Independence Day celebration, the Fourth in the Park, are cooking up a few new activities for this year.
“This will be the 69th anniversary and we’re looking forward to growing the event by adding several new exciting elements to the day,” said Emma Seeley, one of the event’s organizers.
Those new elements include more bands in the parade, free T-shirts to be given away on the parade route, new classic cars rolling down Como Avenue, and down at Langford Park after the parade, a photo booth, face painting, a bouncy castle and obstacle course, an improved sound system and a D.J. Organizers are also planning an Instagram scavenger hunt—stay tuned for the details on that.
If you want to get involved in this year’s event, the Fourth in the Park is holding a volunteer get-together on Tuesday, June 7, 6:30-7:30 p.m.. at Langford Recreation Center. “We will be grilling out and providing treats and beverages for new and existing volunteers,” Seeley said. “Come sign up for a wide variety of volunteer tasks and get your free volunteer T-shirt.”
