Birdseye Park & Fire Department’s 22nd Annual Picnic

The Birdseye Park & Fire Department’s 22nd Annual Picnic kicked off yesterday evening with a Euchre Tourney at 7:00 p.m. There are a ton of events going on during the picnic tonight and tomorrow! The Birdseye picnic isn’t something that I’ve yet had a chance to go to. I’m excited to have the chance to attend this year!

Earlier in the week, I talked to Kelly Wiseman and Chester Bayer during Problems & Solutions. They told me all about the awesome events that are going to be happening. If you didn’t get a chance to hear me speaking with them, of if you’d just like a list of events, I have that for you here!  Maybe you’ve seen the event listing in one of the local papers. But just in case, I wanted to make sure you could get it!

Tonight, there are some really cool things going on. Particularly the Dolly Parton performance. I think that will be extremely unique! Here’s tonight’s events:
