We want to begin by saying a heartfelt THANK YOU to all of you for your great support of our opening days. The weather was (and remains) a challenge this time of year, but in spite of some doubtful weather, old & new friends kicked off our season with a bang. A special shout out to Ed Bounds with "Dakota & Friends" for not one, but two visits for his usual great dinosaur experience - both fun & educational for children & adults alike.

Ed & Dakota have scheduled eight more visits this year (all on Festival Fridays) plus some surprise visits throughout the year. Speaking of events please note just some of what's coming up soon:

Festival Fridays will return - starting April 17. Many will be theme events, but always look for our regulars -- Tripp The Clown, Face Painting, some music, & food. What is a festival party without hotdogs? Hotdogs will be Festival Friday food - Terry's Dawgs will be joining us EVERY Friday. A huge welcome to Terry & we look forward to him joining our Festival Friday Family.  Much more to come about Fridays so watch our blogs facebook, etc plus sign up for our newsletter.

Lyndsay Wednesday (DJ) returns this year, Greg is back with Open Mic Night - moving to Tuesdays starting April 14 & Food Trucks will return (schedule to come ASAP - starting in May).

We will host a book signing, April 11, starting at 2:00, featuring Concord author Lindsay Renae Davis. Her new children's' book, "It's Your Turn To Count" will be available & the audio version is included with the purchase.

Our young friend, Jerry The Clown, will return this year several times "Twisting Balloons" for everyone's enjoyment. You will be reading more about Jerry soon.

FLAVORS, FLAVORS, FLAVORS --- Paradise Ice, Popsicles, Ice Cream -- more flavors, different flavors, WOW! Better come try them all real soon, especially the Paradise Pops.

We will be traveling more this year - returning to Concord's Food Truck Rallies & back with the Kaleidoscope Festivals in Kannapolis! Kaleidoscope on April 25, Food Truck Rally mid to late April, plus our usual visits to schools churches & all sorts of special events in our area - keep up to dates on these & all of Papa's news on Facebook & other forms of social media.

Look forward to seeing all of you real soon. Thanks again for your loyal support.
