Perkasie Park To Hold Annual Founders Day Celebration On August 4, 2018
PERKASIE, Pa. (July 11, 2018) The Historic Perkasie Park Association will open its privately owned Victorian camp meeting grounds to the public again this August, as the Association celebrates its 136th anniversary with its fifth annual Founders Day.
The free event is from 12 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., rain or shine, on August 4, 2018. Local residents may attend, but parking is very limited, so visitors are asked to park on Ninth Street if able to do so.
Visitors can take part in a self-guided tour of the Park during the day. Refreshments also will be available for purchase at the Park’s historic refreshment stand.
A special presentation about the Park’s unique history will be at 4 p.m., featuring many rare photographs of Victorian-era Perkasie and film from the 1950s and 1960s.
