Picnic in the Park

Picnic in the Park is a great day for Concordians as well as people from surrounding towns, with an estimated 3,000 people participating throughout the day. The Picnic is a lovely family time, with entertainment provided for both children and adults. This year a special children’s entertainment show in the Hunt Gym for the children will feature the very exciting Tanglewood Marionettes, a real favorite from prior Picnics. Field games and rides in a hot air balloon will, as always, be there for all to enjoy. The Concord Fire Department and Concord Police Department will jump in to help with demonstrations of the “Fire House”, all of this accompanied by the sounds of various musical groups and with the traditional finale by our own Concord Band.
