The 2016 Southeast Neighbors picnic at Tugman Park is shaping up to be a great one with warm and sunny skies predicted. The annual picnic is a family-friendly event where neighbors can meet up, enjoy entertainment, share excess garden bounty, learn more about the community, get more involved with local issues, have a great time, and just maybe take home a prize.
Listen to music from local favorites Rich Glauber and Pocket Change. Learn juggling, yo-yos, hula hoops, and more from the City of Eugene Circus Arts recreation team. Margaret Mazzotta will have information about crime prevention and a prize wheel activity for children. Eugene Bhangra will perform their signature Bhangra and Bollywood dancing.
