The 2013 Spring WingDing, the neighborhood’s annual celebration, has been scheduled for Saturday, April 27th, at the Audubon Park Recreation Center, 1320 29th Ave. NE, from 11am to 2pm.
ANA, Northeast Middle School (NEMS), and the Recreation Center have collaborated to bring this event to life, with additional support from groups at Edison High School.
As in past years, the event will include exhibits, games, entertainment, and (lots of) food. There will be nature presentations from such organizations as the Audubon Society and the NE Urban 4-H Club, a demonstration of environmental-friendly household cleaners by the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization, and an arts-and-crafts demonstration by the East Side Co-op.
There will be a range of games for kids of all ages. In addition to indoor games for the little one, the Northeast Middle School (NEMS) Athletic Department will arrange outdoor sports or indoor contests (such as football throwing), depending on the weather. Some of these activities will serve as a fundraiser for the department.
As for entertainment, we’ll have a full day. Bands and choirs from both NEMS and Edison are schedule to perform, and there may be dramatic presentations, as well.
