Picnic planned to raise awareness of Pennsbury park

The Pennsbury Township Park Committee is about to launch the
first Picnic in the park Saturday, Sept. 26 from noon to 4 p.m.

According to
Janice Pietrowicz, the event is designed to raise awareness of, and maybe some
money for the park.

“The event is only $5 per carload,” she said. “We want to
get people in and enjoying the park and get them to come back next year.”

In July, township supervisors voted to give $1,000 in seed
money to the committee to get the picnic going. Pietrowicz said the money has
been used to secure bands, vendors and cover the various costs of developing,
then bringing the picnic idea to life.

She said the idea for the picnic is a follow up to the movie
night held at the park several years ago, as well as a follow up to the balloon

The picnic–with a rain date of Oct. 3– will feature two
bands, free hay rides, kindermusik, kids games, tailgating, a raffle, some
face painting and scarecrow building contest with medals awarded for winners.

Pietrowicz suggests people bring some old clothes for the
scarecrow building.

One of the bands is The Flying Mangos.

“We want people to be part of the entertainment process,”
Pietrowicz said.
