Join us for the Mayor’s Annual “Old Time” Picnic on Wednesday, August 1, 2018 – 11:00am – 2:00pm at Powderhouse Park.
There will be food, dancing, music, entertainment and prizes galore.
The Mayor’s Annual Picnic was first introduced to Somerville seniors during the Brune Administration era by Mayor Gene Brune.
Since then the tradition has carried on throughout the years under the direction of Somerville’s Council on Aging as well as throughout all the preceding administrations as an annual successful event.
Hundreds of Somerville seniors attend the Annual Mayor’s Senior Picnic every year that is held at the Powder House Park.
Somerville’s own homegrown talent is always on stage and leading an array of entertainment performing for the crowd.
There will be plenty of dancing, music, entertainment and prizes all throughout the day.
