(June 16, 2017) Sundaes in the Park, now in its 20th year, returns to Northside Park on 125th Street this Sunday, from 7-9 p.m.

“Sundaes in the Park is a convenient event for the many people staying uptown during the summer,” Special Events Coordinator Brenda Moore said. “This is a free event in a great location the whole family [and pets] can enjoy together.”

Guests of all ages have the opportunity to build a sundae with either vanilla or chocolate ice cream and top it with chocolate syrup, caramel, sprinkles, dry nuts, whipped cream and cherries, for a small fee.

In addition to the tasty treats, there will be beverages and novelty ice cream available, and a park concession stand will serve cheeseburgers, hot dogs, French fries, chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks and soft pretzels.

Children can participate in various activities, visit the park playground, and for a small fee, make sand art.

There will be live music each week, with returning acts including Jesse Garron, Front Page News and The British Invasion Experience. Joining the lineup this year will be Good Vibrations, Beach Bumz, Uprizing, Kick It Out, Boy in Black, Guys in Thin Ties, Southern Charm and Separate Ways.

“It’s a great time to relax, hear live music and spend time with your family and friends,” Moore said. “Also, enjoy an ice cream sundae and fireworks too.”

Fireworks will go off at the conclusion of each event to end on a colorful note.

In the event of rain, the activities will be moved indoors into the East Gym in Northside Park with the exception of this Sunday, as a basketball tournament will be taking place.

About 2,000-3,000 people participate in this event weekly. Those interested in joining in the festivities or have any questions can contact 410-250-0125 or go to http://ococean.com/events/sundaes-in-the-park.
