Come to Kenny Park for the annual Ice Cream Social and Green Fair! This celebration of summer happens on Thursday, June 20, 6-8 p.m. at Kenny Park next to the playground. We hope you can make it to our favorite event of the year!

Enjoy free Sebastian Joe’s ice cream and a fabulous concert from the Crosstown Community Band. Several flavors plus a GF/DF option will be provided. New for this year - meet some wonderful dogs from North Star Therapy Animals. The Lady Rainbow of Balloon will also be back at the park to delight neighbors with special balloon creations. Many thanks to City Church for sponsoring the ice cream! As always, they are a fantastic community partner in the neighborhood.
