The California Neighborhood will come together once again in pride and unity as one of Louisville’s oldest and proudest communities celebrates a rebirth when Councilman David James (D-6) hosts the Annual California Day Celebration on Saturday, August 26th.
“This one day in August highlights the continuing spirit of community for the people of the California Neighborhood,” says James. “It is a spirit that is shared all year round. So we celebrate by taking the time as a community to enjoy some fun for children of all ages, music, entertainment and food in the natural beauty of California Park.”
The 2017 California Day Celebration will be held from 12:00pm until 9:00pm. There will be fun activities for the kids and families with a bouncy house, tug-of-war and kick ball and a basketball tournament.
There will also be Back to School giveaways for children in the area on a first come first serve basis. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Free hamburgers and hot dogs will be served from 12:00pm to 4:00pm. Local food trucks will be available, with separate business rates, for those who want something more.
As for music, DJ and the Unlimited Show Band will be providing music and fun throughout the day.
“As the summer winds down, the California Neighborhood is ready to come together, kick back and relax and enjoy an old fashioned neighborhood get together,” says James.
All events are free and open to the public.
California Park is located at 1104 South 16th Street.
