This week’s Evening at Blue Eagle Park Community Picnic will be held on Thursday, July 28th. This is an annual event that many residents look forward to each year. This year’s Community Picnic will continue with the tradition of fun activities, food and fireworks.
Come over for a delicious meal. From 6:00-7:30, pulled pork, brat or hot dog plate meals are all available for a minimal charge. We have to thank the Eagle Café for catering the event, as well as Valley Care and Rehab for donating the delicious macaroni salad! The park will be alive with activities, treats, music and entertainment. Many community organizations will be serving treats for free or small charge. Help support worthwhile organizations that in turn support many programs and activities in our town. The Barnesville Area Community Fund is also providing water for everyone with dinner!
Double A DJ will return with great music and games for everyone. Have some fun with the Hula Hoop contest, water balloon toss or limbo contest. It is such a treat to see those ‘young & old’ residents participate and enjoy themselves. Our hometown hero’s will also be at the picnic for kids to get an up close look at the police vehicle and ambulance. We are hoping AirMed will also be able to join us that night!
This year at the picnic, we will also be crowning our 78th Miss Barnesville and Princess Blue Eagle. At 7:30 pm we will be find out who the winner is that will be representing our town for the next year.
The DJ music and games, excellent food and inflatable games will more than complete the evening. We will top the evening off with a return of the favorite - fireworks! Shot over the lake it promises to be another excellent show. We have to thank the Barnesville Lions for their generous donation to make this possible year after year! Bring your lawn chairs and blankets to use on our natural “stadium-style” hill to enjoy the beautiful display.
Many businesses and organizations in town have graciously donated again this year to defray the cost of the inflatable games and activities for the kids. Their contribution helps to keep this a free activity for everyone. Special thanks to everyone for their support!
As you can see, the Community Picnic has become more than a meal. It is a great opportunity to enjoy summer and make new friends or see some old ones as we celebrate Barnesville’s home town spirit. It is a night of fun for all ages and a gathering to enjoy the community in which we choose to live and work and raise our families. We look forward to seeing you there!
