Com­mu­nity Park Cel­e­bra­tion

The Oakdale Leader - - LEGALS -

Not all the fin­ish­ing touches have been put on yet, but the City of Oak­dale is gear­ing up for a spe­cial grand open­ing cel­e­bra­tion of the new Oak­dale Com­mu­nity Park next month.

The park along South Yosemite Av­enue will be the site of a grand open­ing on Satur­day, Sept. 16, ac­cord­ing to Event Chair­per­son Amy Ve­lasco.

“They want ev­ery­body to gather at the cen­tral gate on South Yosemite, then when the rib­bon is cut, they can go in,” Ve­lasco said of the 11 a.m. rib­bon cut­ting.

There will also be a for­mal ded­i­ca­tion cer­e­mony, mu­sic through­out the day, a ‘food truck frenzy’ with a va­ri­ety of food items, and a skate­board­ing demon­stra­tion with pro­fes­sional skaters. Also, a bas­ket­ball game pit­ting lo­cal po­lice of­fi­cers and fire­fight­ers is planned and a ‘Movie un­der the Stars’ will be shown to cap off the day’s fes­tiv­i­ties.

So far, the mu­si­cal line-up in­cludes the Oak­dale Com­mu­nity Band, The Hoots, Rem­edy, Tony does Elvis, Mel San­guinetti and Friends, and Alex Lucero and Live Again.

“They’re ex­pect­ing it to be a big event,” Ve­lasco said.

Look for ad­di­tional de­tails in fu­ture is­sues of The Leader as the date for the grand open­ing ap­proaches.
