entral Community Park will host the largest Coast Capital Savings “Party in the Park” yet. Starting on Friday, July 8, 2011 (grand opening night featuring Bill Henderson from the band “Chilliwack”) and will run each Friday night from 5:00-10:00 until August 26th (Grand Finale to include O’Connor’s Sunset Cruisin’ in the Park car show).

Kathy Funk, Executive Director of the BIA says, “due to the overwhelming support of corporate sponsorships, we are able this year to expand all areas of this great event and will be giving away a family trip to a favorite California destination compliments of Your Floors.”

Under the great leadership of Chilliwack’s own Trevor McDonald; we anticipate another awesome line up of local and guest bands of all genres. Last year the musicians generously provided two one thousand dollar scholarships to two high school students who plan to continue studies in the field of music.

Our “Family Fun Zone” has the ever popular Lil Putters, Lil Baker’s, Lil Gardener’s, Lil Crafters, Clowin’ Around Zone along with the Activity corner for the rambunctious young ones. Theme nights are back for each week along with the famous high school facepainters.

Mandy Watts Program Coordinator for Continuing Studies UFV says, “I am excited to be hosting the Fraser Valley’s largest ‘Night Market’ at Party in the Park” this season. She says, “To date, we have over 60 vendor’s representing everything from fresh produce, arts, jewelry and some great new ethnic & Canadian food vendors.”
