Johnson County Park & Recreation District is planning a new special event called Park Palooza in mid-September, and everyone's invited!
Park Palooza will be a day filled with activities for all ages at JCPRD's The Theatre in the Park (TTIP), and the best thing about it, is FREE!
Park Palooza will feature live music, entertainment, activities, and food for the purpose of thanking our county residents for their ongoing support and patronage of JCPRD parks and programs!
The event will also include interactive children's performances, family-priced food, as well as food trucks, and of course, a good representation of each JCPRD department.
One of the most popular attractions will the colorful and giant kites being flown by the Kansas City Kite Club.
There will also be live entertainment from popular Beatles tribute band Liverpool and the Kansas City favorite Victor & Penny and their Loose Change Orchestra. And for the kids, our children's performers including Mr. Stinky Feet, H3TV, and Drum Safari will fill The Pavilion.
Along with JCPRD's family-priced concessions on the grounds, we have invited a variety of local food trucks where other food and beverages can be purchased.
The JCPRD departments and facilities that will be presenting a wide assortment of family-friendly activities include: Children's Services, 50 Plus, Fine and Performing Arts, Corporate and Community Wellness, Kansas City Corporate Challenge, Johnson County Park Police, the Johnson County Museum, Sports and Facilities, Ernie Miller Nature Center, and TimberRidge Adventure Center.
There will be additional departments from Johnson County Government helping us celebrate, including Health and Environment and public information officers from the County Manager's Office.
