The Independence Day Celebration and Tea Party is just a week away. We have scheduled seven speakers who will be covering a variety of issues from health care to how to become more politically active. Cynthia Murray will be opening up the event with the singing of our National Anthem; Meredith Blankenstein will be closing the rally with God Bless America. Lisa Mei Norton will give everyone a short break from the speeches with some of her own music celebrating the Tea Party Movement. We will be offering homemade ice cream from Chaps, Vocelli’s Pizza will be selling pizza by the slice as well as drinks, there will be a hotdog vendor selling dogs, chips and drinks however feel free to bring your own refreshments if you so desire. Remember to bring a chair or blanket to sit on.
There is some on street parking in the area but there are two parking garages and two parking lots within several blocks. The closest garage is one block away on the corner of East Market Street and 5th St. NE, from here go north on 5th St. one block and that will take you to E. Jefferson St and the park is to your left. The other garage and parking lots are on East Water Street, from these locations take 3rd St north three blocks and take a right on E. Jefferson and the park is one block east.See map
