Festival in the Park celebrated its 50th birthday this past year.This annual event is a tradition for many local families and we look forward to continuing the tradition for many years to come. Each year, we feature school art by local children. The art is displayed on large panel boards. Because the event takes place outdoors, the boards require canopies in order to protect the art from rain. The existing canopies have been used for many years and are in dire need of replacement.

Through power2give we invite you to help support this special need of the Festival. At this time, your gift has the power to go even further as the Akers Foundation is matching $0.50 to every $1.00! Thank you for your consideration.
