Parisian Promenade

There is an upcoming event that several of the Carolina Petanque group plan to attend. It is to be held in Greensboro's Bicentennial Gardens on Sunday, May 4, 2008. The name of the festival is Parisian Promenade. According to the website, it is to:
"Celebrate the arrival of spring by enjoying the sights, scenes, sounds and smells of a spring afternoon in Paris. Parisian Promenade will feature painters, photographers, fresh-cut flower bouquets, live musical performances, a children’s area (featuring art activities, balloon sculpting, and Tic Tac Toe), French food demonstrations, Poodle Parade and much more. It is a terrific opportunity to see a brilliant display of the garden in full bloom -- nature's artistry at its finest. This is a cooperative project between Greensboro Beautiful and the Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department and is sponsored by Doris and Stanley Tanger."

Here are a few pictures from last year's affair. (Courtesy of Philippe's Petanque America blog archives.) As you can see, it was a lot of fun. Once again we plan to have a small table displaying petanque equipment and show the crowds the basics of how to play our game. We had a lot of interest last year and would like to recruit anyone who might want to play and/or join our club.
Why not plan to bring the family and come on out and join us? We look forward to seeing you!
