2010 Parisian Promenade

From the greensborobeautiful.org website:

The Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden
1105 Hobbs Road, just north of Friendly Avenue

This Garden was created in 1976 to commemorate our nation's bicentennial. Today, the garden is a thriving landmark and destination for Triad residents and visitors. The Bicentennial Garden includes a wealth of plantings from ground covers, shrubs, mass plantings of annuals and perennials, to flowering and canopy trees.
To complement the natural beauty, a Wedding Gazebo adds an air of elegance, a man-made recirculating stream provides texture, movement and sound, and a Sensory Garden engages visitors in an interactive landscape experience. A variety of sculpture placed throughout the garden provides artistic and historic interest.

We went over this morning to meet with the good people of the Parks and Recreation Department in Greensboro (thanks, Johnny!) to discuss CarolinaPetanque's participation in this upcoming Sunday's event. Entitled "Parisian Promenade," it is a celebration of French culture and will include cuisine, art, and entertainment. From 1:00 to 5:00 on June 6, 2010.

We will have a site to display boules, literature, etc. In addition, we will have ongoing play and hands-on training throughout the afternoon. Everyone is welcome. Hope to see you there!
