WESTOVER – The City of Westover is gearing up for Westover Day in the Park, its annual community event held each year at City Hall Park.
Scheduled for Saturday, May 7, volunteers led by longtime resident Brenda Moorer worked diligently to entice vendors to showcase their wares and arts and crafts to event attendees.
“We proudly invite everyone to our Westover Day in the Park to enjoy a day of food, fun and a chance to meet your neighbors,” Moorer said. “It’s a great community to live in and I’m lucky to have been here my whole life.”
Tucked away behind Westover City Hall is the Community Park with its pavilions and picnic tables, children’s playground and paved walking path. Most of the time, citizens can find a calm park with passers-by and children on the playground.
However, on May 7, vendors will line the walking path, a grassy field will house a bouncy house, and vintage cars will be on display for all to admire. Food trucks will include Eugene’s Chicken, Pazzo Pizza and a free ice cream truck. Rambo and Skiers Marine will showcase personal watercraft at the event.
Vehicle parking will be available on the west side of City Hall on the grass, right-of-way on Old 280 and limited parking in the gravel area of the Westover Fire Hall directly across from the ‘city Hall.
