Early registration for Citizens for Brentwood Green Space’s third annual “A Walk in the Park” event has been extended to Sept. 30, 2017.
This year’s festivities will take place at Marcella Vivrette Smith Park on Wilson Pike on Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017. The family-oriented A Walk in the Park event helps raise money for the maintenance and upkeep of Smith Park, the largest park in the city limits of Brentwood.
“This year’s event will be our biggest one ever,” said Gil Hutchinson, president of Brentwood Green Space. “We have extended the registration deadline to allow families more time to take advantage of this year’s early-bird discounts.”
Some of the highlights expected at this year’s A Walk in the Park include:
- Live music by a local favorite, The One and Only Bill Davis;
- Family activities such as train rides, face painting, balloon art, magic show and kid’s activities;
- Children’s Treasure Hunt activity with treats by Puffy Muffin Dessert Bakery and Restaurant;
- Food and Refreshments by Judge Bean’s BBQ, Papa C Pies, Sugar Drop, and Jackalope Beer;
- Luxury automobile display by Andrews Transportation Group Vintage Baseball Game.
