SUPER SATURDAY 2014
Washington Township will host its annual Super Saturday Celebration on Saturday May 10th beginning at 10:00 AM at the Washington Lake Park Amphitheater.
The annual event is a traditional crowd pleaser in Washington Township.
What makes Super Saturday so ‘super’ is that the theme, ‘Caring for the Needy’ truly embodies the spirit of the community?
Super Saturday is like an old-fashioned town fair complete with amusement rides, family entertainment, great food and colorful, attractive vendor displays to browse and shop. Of course the best part is bumping into all your old friends and neighbors. It’s like a homecoming right there in the park.
Super Saturday by tradition has always benefited Washington Township's Family and Community Services Department where we offer programs such as; Christmas Angels, Mother's Cupboard and Referral's for counseling services, tutoring and Children's Groups. For additional information on these services call 589-0520 ext. 254 or stop by their table for details.
Super Saturday promises a little something for everyone- from arts and crafts and marching bands to great Mother's Day gifts and live music. Children’s activities include: face painting, balloon art. The Rocky Mountain, Castle Fun Center, Big Baller, The Giant Slide and The Dixie Spin Out Ride. The Washington Township middle school and 5th grade bands will entertain park guests in the morning hours. And this year a free live concert in the afternoon hours by Washington Township’s very own Sass Faction.
Don't forget this year's Super Saturday event is May 10th from 10 am to 4:00 pm with a rain-date of May 17th.
