Hills set ‘Sunday in the Park’

August 9, 2007

Family fun will be served with hot dogs at the Brownsville Amphitheater during the first-time “Sunday in the Park” event this weekend.

The event, hosted by the Brownsville Recreation Committee, will feature pony rides, egg races and a watermelon-eating contest. Each child that participates in the races will get a grab bag of goodies, and the winners will get ribbons. Also for the kids will be a clown and a storyteller.

But Sunday in the Park is more than child’s play. A few members from the farmers market will be selling their goods, and there will also be a cake walk, a pie sale and a jam and jelly contest.

Organizer Jan Moen hopes this will become an annual event and is expecting a turnout of around 300 to 400 people.

“It’ll be good old-fashioned fun,” Moen said.

The event will run from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. Food will be on sale from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The cake walk will start at 1:30 p.m.

Proceeds gathered from food sales and some of the events will be used to improve and maintain the park.

The Brownsville Recreation Committee is part of Yuba Feather Communities Services. The amphitheater is on Ponderosa Way in this Yuba foothills community.

Anyone who would like to sell small animals such as dogs, cats or goats, or just wants more information about the event, may call Jan Moen at 675-0362.
