A Groundbreaking Civic Stadium
October 7 • 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm• Free
Dig this: A little more than three years after Eugene Civic Stadium was destroyed by a catastrophic fire, a new Civic Park is set to rise from the ashes. At 2 pm Sunday, Oct. 7, you’re invited to bring your own shovel and take part in an official community groundbreaking (yes, actual construction prep is already under way; they wanted to get a few things done during the dry season) at the site of the new park at 2077 Willamette Street. Civic Park is being created by the non-profit Eugene Civic Alliance. Pedal Power Music will provide entertainment. Guests can offer ideas for items to include in a Civic Time Capsule to be buried on the site. Expect food and drink and, naturally, speeches from community leaders and ECA team members. If you survive the speechifying, you’ll be invited to take your shovel, find a spot and dig in. — Bob Keefer
