On April 19, 2014, the Downtown Residential Council (DRC) will hold it’s Inaugural “Egg Rock ‘N Roll Event” at Lincoln Park in the Civic Center on First Street and Pacific Avenue.
The event, with games and prizes for young children, is being co-sponsored with the Long Beach Park, Recreation and Marine Department, and the District 2 Office of Councilmember Suja Lowenthal and is free and open to the public from 11am until 2pm.
Egg hunts, sack races, face painting, sidewalk chalk drawings, and a moon bounce will be featured. The Library is including a Story Telling Area. Long Beach Fire Department is bringing a fire truck from 12-1pm and The Long Beach Police Association is grilling hot dogs as prizes for children who complete the round of games and activities. Josh Fischel and the Riot Stage Players will provide music.
The activities at Lincoln Park, adjacent to city hall and the downtown public library are part of a series of events planned to help make the park more accessible to the general public. Local merchants, individual contributors, the Downtown Long Beach Associates and the Convention and Visitors Bureau have all provided funding, prizes and materials. Adults interested in volunteering to help, or needing more information, may contact Allison Kripp, Event Coordinator at 310 488-5154 or Allison@Densalonlb.com.
“The Downtown Residential Council has representatives from a cross section of residents within our affiliated neighborhood organization members. We share a common goal and passion for helping to make our urban neighborhoods a desirable and fun place to live and work. The Egg Rock ‘N Roll activities at Lincoln Park represent an important opportunity to re-introduce this vital downtown landscape and adjacent dog park to our residents,” said Joe Ganem, DRC President.
The DRC is comprised of resident leaders from the six Downtown neighborhood associations: Promenade Area Residents Association, Ocean Residents Community Association, North Pine Neighborhood Alliance, West Gateway Community Association, Willmore City Heritage Association, and East Village Association.
