Our ending celebration on August 17 is also shaping up to be a great time.

Julio Jackson, an exceptionally talented local performer has agreed to provide music that is sure to get the crowd moving.  Here is a link to Kingston, Exit 19: http://vimeo.com/19259885

Sav-on Party Center’s Scott Harrington has agreed to help with a bouncy for the kids, and as promised to the 2nd grade class on a field trip to City Hall, cotton candy – Hooray!!  Asked and delivered compliments of Sav-on.  Incidentally, Scott Harrington is also helping this project with a massive tarp to protect the equipment which we are extremely grateful for.

Vendors are still needed – email jenfuentes77@gmail.com if you are interested in setting up for the event.  So far we have JJ’s Rocking Cupcakes so we are in good shape as far as the committee is concerned.  More updates on the ending celebration in the coming weeks.

A Passport to your Kingston Parks

Diane Reeder, of the Queens Galley/Cooking Matters is setting up a “Passport to your Kingston Parks” contest.  This project is more than just movie nights and fun, but also a community celebration of the fabulous public spaces and parks that make our city such a wonderful place to live, work, and play.  Pick up your “Passport” at the popcorn station or T-shirt table and get a stamp each week. Everyone with 8 stamps is eligible to enter a drawing for a great giveaway.  And the best part is everybody wins at this contest because you get a chance to spend time at our great parks all summer long.
