State of the Town

State of the Town

Whether you are relatively new to Parker or you’ve called this amazing town home for some time, it’s always nice to know what’s going on in your community. On Thursday, April 12th, you can get a FREE front row seat to all things Parker. The annual State of the Town Event, sponsored by the Parker Chamber, will be hosted at the gorgeous PACE Center (20000 Pikes Peak Avenue) from 6:30pm-8:30pm.

Growing up in a very similar town to Parker (not too far south from here), I felt immediately at home when we decided to move here with our children to make Parker the place we raised our family. Much like the town I grew up in, there have been changes over the last 30 years, and more to come, as change is inevitable. But what is unchanging is the incredible sense of community. Parker Town Council Member Joshua Rivero echoes that sentiment,  “Maintaining a hometown feel is not about the number of people that live in our town, it is about how we treat one another. It’s never been about the population, it’s about being a community.”

April 12’s State of the Town event, where you can learn all about the great things happening right here in Parker, will begin with a 30 minute meet and greet with Mayor Mike Waid and members of Parker Town Council, followed by a 30 minute presentation, concluding with a cash bar reception following the presentation.
In addition to getting a chance to chat with the Mayor and members of Town Council, the State of the Town event is also your chance to enter a drawing for two (2) pairs of ALL DAY Carnival Passes to Parker Days 2018 (June 8th-10th) or one (1) pair of General Admission Trace Adkins tickets for the Parker Days Kick Off Concert on Thursday, June 7th, at 6:00pm.
