Picnic in the Park & 4th of July Fun
There are a number of things to do in and near Livingston for this very special holiday. The streets are already overlooked with stories and pictures of veterans on every light pole in downtown. Fireworks are a normal celebration, but one celebration that is always a favorite in this small town is the “Picnic in the Park” event at Anniversary Park in Historic Downtown Main Street District. This event is on Tuesday, July 4th from 10am-1pm.
This picnic always catches the eyes of anyone who drives by because the vehicles entered in the Car & Motorcycle Show are more like works of art sitting in downtown. People of all ages love to enjoy a free hotdog, or really the “donations accepted” hotdog, and take a walk around Anniversary Park enjoying the sun and the beautiful vehicles. All the donations from this event go to a local volunteer group called F.A.I.T.H Ministries. F.A.I.T.H buys, packs, and sends care packages to active duty soldiers.
There will be live music being performed in the park during the picnic. Don’t just drive by with the windows down, make sure to get out and have some fun for a little while.
There will even be contests with prizes. Bring in a decorated bike for the Bicycle Parade for a chance to win something sweet to go with their pride of country. The parade starts at 11am.
There will be games, music, entertainment, vendors, and prizes. Some of the fun returning booths at this year’s event include Myli’s SweEat Ice and Main Street District’s own K&P Salon.
Gazebo, Picnic Areas, and Events. Located in downtown Livingston on the corner of East Church and North Tyler.
