Webster’s 2020 Summer Celebration CANCELED
Instead, residents can pick up a ‘bag of summer’
So many monumental Webster events have been canceled due to COVID-19, including the town’s annual “Summer Celebration.” However, the town’s parks and recreation department is introducing “Summer Celebration Re-Imagined” in its place, to keep the summer spirit alive.
This year, residents will be able to pick up a free bag full of summer surprises from the Webster Recreation Center to help them celebrate summer at home.
“The bag distribution will be a drive-thru party in a parking lot!” The Webster Parks & Recreation Department shared on Facebook. “We can’t tell you everything we have in store for you... but we are encouraging you to pack up the family and come pick up a bag! (*Bonus points if your car is decorated in fun summer gear!*) So, even though we can't be together this year, we can still celebrate!”
“Summer Celebration Re-Imagined” will take place Saturday, June 20 from 12 to 2 p.m. at the Webster Recreation Center (1350 Chiyoda Drive). There is a limit to one bag per car. Bags are available to the first 1,000 cars from 12 to 2 p.m. or until supplies run out. Residents are reminded to wear a mask and remain in their vehicles at all times. There will be a traffic pattern to follow upon arrival.
