Picnic Like it's 1869

Picnic Like Its 1869 - 9-11-2019

This Sunday, Picnic Like It’s 1869!

Calling all picnic hampers – both antique and backpack – Riversiders are cordially invited to the second annual Picnic Like It’s 1869.

On Sunday, September 15, from 1 pm to 4 pm, the community is invited to bring a picnic to the Swan Pond Bluffs.  Prime picnicking areas start at the sledding hill and extend to the library. A tentative list of the afternoon's activities follows:

  • Relaxing and enjoying your picnic
  • Children’s arts and craft table
  • Violin concert
  • Storytime
  • Nature tours
  • Croquet

Let’s honor picnicking from the past by leaving no trace of our picnic. Residents are encouraged to bring reusable items and take any trash home with them.

There is no rain date for this event. We will confirm rain cancellation with a note posted at the main desk in the library.

Whether picnicking, exploring, relaxing, or playing, Enjoy our Landscape Responsibly by keeping the space clean. 

This event is sponsored by the Landscape Advisory Commission.
