Culver City offers Birthday Party in the Park to Celebrate Centennial
As Culver City’s yearlong Centennial Celebration winds to a close, Martin Feinberg, Culver City Realtor, would like to remind everyone about some of the upcoming Centennial Closing Events. One such occasion is the Birthday Party in the Park happening on September 16.
The Birthday Party in the Park will be held in Veterans Park at the corner of Overland Avenue and Culver Blvd. It begins at 11:00 a.m. and will go until 7:00 p.m. The event is free to the public. Participants are asked to enter the Birthday Party through the balloon arch where they will receive a program, map, and “passport”. Visitors can then use the map to visit various locations within the party, get their passports stamped, and turn them in for the chance to win a prize.
During the morning hours, Party activities will focus on family fun. Public schools will be providing kids games and there will also be arts and crafts supplies on hand for kids to build their own cardboard village, do chalk art, and help paint a mural or Kindness Rock. For the more athletically minded, basketball, paddle tennis, and a health and wellness station will also be available.
Food trucks will offer food options for the event. Partygoers may purchase food on the premise or bring their own lunch. Along with all of the eating that will be happening, the Birthday Party in the Park is also sponsoring a baking contest.
The Culver City Historical Society will be providing 35 minute guided bus tours on the Centennial Bus during the Party. There will be five tours available: noon, 1:00, 2:00, 3:00, and 4:00. The tour is free but a ticket, which can be picked up at the Archives and Resource Center, is required to board the bus. Tickets need to be picked up at least 15 minutes before tour time. Empty seats will be offered to the stand-by line 5 minutes before departure. Those interested should meet the bus in front of the Veteran’s Memorial Building at the Culver City Bus Stop.
Once afternoon hits the focus of the party will move to the adults (though the entire family will still be welcome). The bands Pine Mountain Lodge and Jack Mack and the Heart Attack will be playing from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and a dance floor will be provided. The Mayor will also MC a program that will include performances by the Taiko drummers from the middle school, the high school marching band, the drum line and cheerleaders, and a presentation of the street light pole banners.
Martin Feinberg, Realtor, hopes that many will choose to take advantage of one of the last opportunities to celebrate Culver City’s 100th Birthday. Culver City, including Culver City Real Estate, is a wonderful place to live and work and is worthy of being celebrated.
