Cool events during hot summer


Commentary by Melody Jones

As the summer season starts up, Westfield’s Parks Dept. is getting ready for some amazing events:

Party on the Patio: On May 28, we’ll be hosting Downtown Westfield Association’s Party on the Patio event at our facility at 330 E Main St. This party will be special because we are unveiling some initial design concepts for Grand Junction from Land Collective. David Rubin from Land Collective will be on hand with conceptual designs on display. The event is co-sponsored by Westfield Parks, Edward Jones and Body One.

Bingo Brunch: Join us for a delicious brunch catered by Chick-fil-A and Bingo, sponsored by Magnolia Springs at Bridgewater. We will play seven rounds of Bingo with a cover-all to end the event. Here’s your chance to win and take home fun prizes. Bring some friends along or meet some new ones. For ages 50 and better. Cost is $10 per person, per program. Pre-registration is required, and ends one week prior to program. Save these dates: June 4, July 9 and Aug. 6.

Bike Rodeo: What a great way for children, ages 6-12 and their families to learn about safety, health, and fitness while celebrating National Trails Day. This free event is designed to teach children the proper rules of the road. Attendees will go through helmet fitting instruction, bike inspection, and be instructed on bicycle safety as it applies to safety while on the road, sidewalk or trail. All children need to bring their own bicycle with their own helmet in order to participate. Enjoy music, prize raffles, and more. A children’s bike will be given away courtesy of Carmel Cyclery. Join us at Quaker Park from 10 a.m. to noon June 7.

Westfield Rocks the 4th: Westfield Rocks the 4th, the annual Independence Day celebration held in Asa Bales Park, is the single largest community gathering for Westfield. 2014 marks the fifth year and the event continues to grow and improve. This year’s Headliner’s Car Show is anticipated to double in size, the Kids Area will continue to add new activities, live entertainment on the main stage, and the fireworks display will be bigger and better than ever. The event starts at 4 p.m.

We would love to have you help out for any and all of these events, so please volunteer. To donate some of your time, get in touch with us at 804-3184. Everyone can lend a hand, even in some small way, so please help our Westfield community have a summer to remember.
