Pioneer Day Celebration Includes 125th Anniversary Elements
Beer garden, bake-off, old-fashioned kids’ games and more planned!
With a theme of “Old Fashioned Funfair,” the Paso Robles 125th Anniversary celebration is
teaming up with Pioneer Day to bring a few new elements to the City Park during the 2014 Pioneer Day in honor of the city’s Quasquicentennial year. The event takes place Saturday, October 11, 2014.
In addition to the local favorite parade and other activities, there are a handful of fun elements planned to keep people in the park after the parade, including a street dance, a beer garden, a bake-off for amateurs and professionals, old-fashioned kids games including a cake walk and tug of war, and more.
Beer and Ginger Ale Garden
Just east of the gazebo you will find the first ever Pioneer Day Beer and Ginger Ale Garden. Firestone Walker Brewing Company, ever dedicated to supporting its community, has donated beer to this event to be sold as a fundraiser for the 125th Anniversary. Ginger Ale will also be for sale, donated by Pithy Little Wine Company. Bottled water will be available for purchase.
Are you an amateur or professional baker? Got a famous recipe for apple pie, cobbler or cupcakes? Bring your creation down to the park before the parade for your chance to win bragging rights and recognition in the local media. No charge to enter. Local “celebrity” judges to be announced. For more information contact Shonna Howenstine at 227.7236 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Come introduce your kids or grandkids to the games you loved as a kid. There will be a cake walk, tug of war, sack races, hula hooping and more. Located east of the gazebo.
Let the good times roll! A street dance will take place on Pine Street between 11th and 12th Streets, adjacent to the beer and ginger ale garden. Local favorite Monte Mills and the Lucky Horse Shoe Band are the entertainment.
Antique Equipment Display
Select Pioneer Day parade entries including some of the finest antique wagons and tractors anywhere, will be on display on 12th Street from 1:00 to 4:00 PM for the public to view and take photos with.
