It’s a bittersweet day for lower Broadway, as the time has come to pack up Paradise Park. There will be an on-site photo booth to capture your final shenanigans, as well as commemorative koozies given away.
Friday, July 27
Lover’s Paradise, 7-11 p.m.
Online ordained minister Max Goldberg will be coming out of retirement to unite lovers in not-so-holy matrimony or to renew vows. Participating couples will enjoy ring pops, top hats, and tiaras with veils. The happy couple will also receive a coupon for a free chili cheese tot and sweet tea.
Saturday, July 28
Final Family Fun 11-4 p.m.
Paradise Park is always kid-friendly until 9 p.m. every night, but on Saturday, folks can bring in their kids and enjoy $5 burgers (and $6 pitchers for the grown-ups). Then it’s time to Pack up the Park for the final party until 3 a.m.!
As every other Saturday night, it will be a party. Due to popular demand, Paradise Park will be selling 50 framed pieces of the astroturf, of which a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Oasis Center. Paradise Park has a special affinity to the Oasis Center, as it has hosted their annual Hot Chicken and Jorts fundraiser ten times over the past nine years, raising nearly $100,000 for local at-risk youth.
At 3 a.m., the front doors of Paradise Park will close forever.
