Park Hills council approved a slew of 2023 events for the Civic Association at the March business meeting this week. Due to the usage of city parks and spaces that require permit approval, council is obligated to sign off on the variety of merrymaking and traditions.
Kicking it off this month with an open house at the city chambers on Amsterdam Road, the Civic Association hopes to welcome familiar and new faces to the organization.
Created to evoke interest in Park Hills and all it has to offer recreationally, the organization runs off of dues-paying memberships, which fosters local events.
“Membership shall consist of any reputable individual resident owning, renting, or operating a business located in the city of Park Hills or the unincorporated territories of the Park Hill,” according to their website.
The open house aims to enlighten everyone about their mission to connect neighbors with local happenings.
Attendees can speak directly with those who can guide them in creating a city event or activity, such as yoga in the park, a parade, or a quirky gardeners club like the Park Hills Avant Gardeners.
As Spring arrives, the annual Easter egg hunt hops into Trolley Park on April 1. The event is BYOB: That is, Bring Your Own BASKET.
Other annual events include:
- May 29th: The Memorial Day parade
- May and June: yoga in the park on Saturdays
- July 8th: City wide yard sale
- September 16th: City picnic
- October 29th: Pumpkin parade
- December 11th: Christmas in the Park
