GREENWICH, Conn. After the success of the first Greenwich Town Party, planning has begun for the second annual event in 2012 and organizers are looking for volunteers.
The official date for the 2012 event is Saturday, May 26, during Memorial Day weekend. The party will be held once again at Roger Sherman Baldwin Park. Like this year's party, it will feature musical performances, food from local restaurants and caterers, a BBQ cook-off and a family festival with free activities for kids.
More than 3,500 Greenwich residents and business owners joined this year's festivities. The nonprofit event was created to bring the people of the town together for a day of community pride. Ticket prices are reduced to make it affordable for more people to attend through substantial donations. Residents and local businesses are encouraged to "throw something in the pot" to support the 2012 event, through the party's website.
Another way people in the community can contribute is by volunteering at the event. A volunteer signup link is also available on the Greenwich Town Party website where people can apply for positions. A limited number of positions will be available for those interested in working for a set time periods during the event. Volunteers will also be given one free ticket to remain at the event before or after their shift.
Tickets will go on sale in March after the music lineup is confirmed in February. Those who are registered with the website or who purchased tickets for the previous event will be given the opportunity to purchase tickets in advance during a presale period.
