PINSON — Pinson City Councilors Dawn Tanner and Glenda Kirkland gave an update on what citizens can expect for the upcoming Pinson CityFest on May 8, 2021, at Bicentennial Park. Tanner said that the splash pad will be open and free for children to use during the event.
“We’re going to do things a little bit different this year,” Tanner said. “The splash pad will be open (from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.) and it will be a ‘no cost’ day. We will be having spike ball sets set up; we’ll have disc golf, if you want to do that.”
She said that the city will have disc golf discs available for citizens to check out, and the city will be giving out free sports flyers/Frisbees to each family.
“Our feature act that day will be Parker Barrow Project,” she said. “This is a band that I’m looking forward to and I think everybody will enjoy them.”
Kirkland said that, so far, four food trucks and one tent food vendor are signed up for the event.
