Due to the predicted showers on Saturday, the Greenway Conservancy has extended the fun of Try Something New into Sunday (Saturday's event is still on, rain or shine). Please also join us on from 12-4 pm for ice skating, the Round Up carnival ride, a treasure hunt, and public art.

Please visit www.hellogreenway.org for more information on participating program partners and hours of operation.
