Decks In The Park Is Back!

Decks in the Park has become a staple event for Klyde Warren Park, bringing over 5,000 attendees once a month to celebrate, as it's coined, beats park and life! What does it all mean? Very simply, it's a party for the people by the people. To say this was a passion project gone viral would be an understatement. This idea, spurned by founder Jeff Mitchell, has truly taken on a life of it's own. Folks have come to anticipate this free event every last Thursday of the month. It's a chance to live freely. It's a safe place for families, friends, and yes even pups. This event means something to a lot of people. It provides a platform for Dallasites from all walks of life to come together, if only for one night. Fortunately, up until now, Decks in the Park was able to self-fund due to generous sponsors.

This year is a bit different. Increased costs are leading to the possibility of extinction for us. I say us, because I am a proud member of the board. A group of people who donate our time to put this together for our city. While still coming up a bit short, the show will go on this month on April 30th -- but if we want to keep this phenomenon alive it's going to take more than a few dedicated citizens and companies, it's going to take a village. If you'd like to see Decks continue you can donate directly at www.decksinthepark.com/donate.

Enough about that, let's get back to celebrating! Here is an inside look at a few of your Decks in the Park board members who are working to keep this dream alive.
