Antwerp’s Day in the Park is Just Around the Corner
by News Submissions •
Antwerp’s 15th Annual Day in the Park is August 9. You won’t want to miss a day filled with community fun at our beautiful Riverside Park!
The day will begin with a parade through downtown Antwerp beginning at 10:00 in the morning.
The crowd will then gather at the park for the opening at 11:00 with our own Community Band leading us in the National Anthem as we salute our country. We will follow that with the Gem of Antwerp and the Friend of the Chamber presentations before the band continues their concert. Also entertaining us throughout the afternoon will be the Dance Dolls, the Alley Cats, “Johnny Appleseed” and the Paulding County Sheriff’s Department will do a demonstration with their K-9 unit. (Please leave your pets at home so they do not interfere with the program).
As usual we will have a lot of food and craft booths as well as informational tables along with the Little Maumee Express train rides. New this year we will have a “Chalk Walk” for the kids and Putt Putt Golf. The car show this year is being hosted by Larry Copsey and Dan Bowers. So bring out your “Hot Rod” and show it off! See if you can pick the lucky duck in the Duck Race or if your baking talents can win the pie baking contest.
The public is invited to bring their retired flags and leave them at the Chamber table for a disposal ceremony at 4:00 p.m. by the Antwerp Boy Scouts and the Antwerp VFW.
There is still time if you wish to have an informational booth. Please note if you have information or “goodies” to distribute you are required to have a table so the people can come to you.
There is something for everyone so bring your lawn chair and come to the park for a day of fun!
