Events for 2008 in Depot Town and the Parks

Posted by ppna on April 7, 2008

I’ve corrected some dates and added more events as of 4-10-2008

Here is a summary of the Events that are going to take place this summer in Depot Town and in The Parks. I’m not 100% sure that the dates are correct but I think most of them are or are close.

April Through June I9 Sports, is having Flag Football at Frog Island I think I9 is a For Profit company which will be using Frog Island. In the DTCDC report they suggest that they are going to ask I9 to help with maintenance I would hope they force them to pay rent or provide maintenance. If you have details please post a comment.

    Are you sure about the Heritage Festival dates? August 17-19 is Sunday-Tuesday.

    I checked and changed the Heritage Festival dates. The dates I had came from the DTCDC’s report and I didn’t fact check them all– As I stated at the top of the posting.
