Chilliwack’s favourite downtown event is back for another exciting run.

Get ready for Party in the Park on four exciting Fridays: July 17,  July 24, August 14 and August 21.

Local entertainer extraordinaire Trevor McDonald is back in the organizer role again, hosting the Chances Chilliwack Community Stage and coordinating the talented entertainment lineup for the summer.

The park fun starts at 5:15 p.m. usually showcasing dance numbers by Chilliwack’s top dance studios. Then the live music takes over to rock the ‘Wack into the night.

On July 17 Capella Dance starts off the lineup, followed by Curbside Jazz, Maggpie, Dusty Aces, The Fever and Angry Mike.

As well as the main stage, they’re setting up a couple of secondary performance stages on Wellington Avenue at the Triple Play Stage and the Fortins Arts Stage at Wellington and Main.

Each of the PITP nights in 2015 will have its own special colour theme, and attendees can join in the fun by dressing in the theme colour.

On July 17 it’s all about sunshine yellow. On July 24 organizers want to glance at the crowd and see a sea of shimmering blue. Then August 14 expect to see lots of glorious green. The closing night of PITP on August 21 will be resplendent in red.

The first Party in the Park event is just around the corner!

“Show some Party in the Park spirit by wearing the theme colour,” say organizers.

There will be something fun to do for kids all ages. Whether it’s about crafting, hearing live music, shopping or samples items from the various food trucks, PITP has it all going on.

Come enjoy this summer event on July 17 & 24 and August 14 & 21.
