The Parksville and District Association for Community Living is having a party and they’re inviting the whole community to take part.

The group’s annual picnic will be held in Foster Park this year, say organizers.

Known for their block parties at the McMillan Arts Centre building in the past, they have held their picnic at Rathtrevor Beach  in the past and have opted to try holding it at Foster Park this time around.

Organizers are suggesting that people bring things like a blanket, chairs, sunscreen, hats and sunglasses, as it looks like the weather could be hot and sunny. For their part, they will provide the food, drink, music and games.

The park is located on the corner of Pym Street and Sanderson Road and there is plenty of parking along Sanderson.

The picnic runs on Thursday, July 19, starting at 11 a.m. and running to 3 p.m.
