It’s almost time for the annual Piñata Party at Stevens Place Park (informally known as Triangle Park—it’s the small triangular park located between Beacon Avenue South, South Stevens Street, and 17th Avenue South)! Last year’s party was cancelled because of the Link Light Rail opening day festivities, but this year it’s back on July 17 with music, food, and as always, piñatas for the kids to clobber.

Jon Gould sent us this announcement about the event:

Our neighborhood Beacon Hill Piñata Party is Saturday, July 17 from 12 noon – 3:00pm at Triangle Park at South Stevens Streeet and Beacon Avenue South.

On behalf of your neighborhood organizing committee, here are a few notes for past attendees and first timers:

We’re not grilling this year. Instead, food will be potluck style with a few local restaurants and Red Apple contributing. We’ll definitely have free fruit, juice and water. Please bring an item to share or a picnic lunch.

Entertainment, games, piñatas
Local band and Piñata Party tradition Lushy will perform as well as Beacon Avenue’s Jun Hong Kung Fu and a Oaxacan dance for kids. There will be a number of fun games for kids, too. Piñatas will start around 2:15pm. We still need a few more piñatas. Please let me know if you can bring a piñata.

Here’s a flyer you can download and circulate—all are welcome!

Please let me know if you have any questions… see you there.

PS. Here are some photos from the 2008 Piñata Party.

Thanks, Jon!
