Description

In celebration of the park’s 25th anniversary, we invite you to join us on Sunday, August 26 from 4:00-8:00 for live music, food, and more! After feasting on local food truck fare and exploring hand-crafted artisan booths, visitors can dance the night away to live music by retro jazz ensemble The Spare Buttons and son jarocho group Conjunto Tenocelomeh. Additionally, as part of park staff’s ongoing efforts to gather local stories of the site and its long history, we’re encouraging guests to bring photos and citrus memories to our story share station, with prizes to the first 25 pictures of the park! There will also be lots to explore at our new pop-up exhibit and historical and cultural displays from local community groups, as well as a fruit display, tasting, and information from the UCR Citrus Variety Collection, UCR Citrus Clonal Protection Program, and UCR Huanglongbing Research Teams. Last but certainly not least, there will be crate-loads of fun activities like a dunk tank (we’re taking volunteers!), and games like smudge pot ring toss, pummelo bowling goes viral, and more!

The event is free (with $5 parking fee).

For more information, please contact Megan Suster at megan.suster@parks.ca.gov or 951-689-8645.  

We hope to see you there!
