UPDATE May 22: The Kickin’ ’n’ Pickin’ Kickball Tournament has been cancelled due to the football fields at Port Royal Park not being ready in time. They are fully sodded; but because the sod is not yet grown in, kickball would cause the fields to get torn up and present safety concerns.
The 30-acre Port Royal Park, the City’s largest park, is three times the size of Spring Hill’s next largest city park, Evans Park, which is 10 acres. This new active space also includes some of the most citizen-requested park features.
The Spring Hill Memorial Day Celebration will consist of five separate events all happening between 8 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. May 23 at Port Royal Park, 4285 Port Royal Road.
8 a.m. – the fun kicks off with the Kickin’ ‘n’ Pickin’ charity kickball tournament. This Rotary Club of Spring Hill & Thompson’s Station fundraiser will include live Country/Americana music performances by The Brian Collins Band, Crosby Lane, and Spring Hill’s own, Amber’s Drive.
10 a.m. – City of Spring Hill officials will host a park dedication ceremony for the grand opening of Port Royal Park and Fire Station No. 2. That’s when the splash pad will be officially turned on for the first time.
2 p.m. – City officials will host a Memorial Day Ceremony in remembrance of those who served and paid the ultimate price for our nation.
2:30 p.m. – The music cranks up again with Amber’s Drive.
4:30 p.m. – Annual Summerfest concert series
8:30 p.m. – enjoy the family friendly “Movie in The Park” under the stars on our outdoor movie screen. The first movie of the season is “Big Hero 6.”
Don’t forget your folding chairs or blankets. Food trucks will be available at the park throughout the day. And the kids will enjoy bungee jumping, bouncing, bull riding, and meeting Disney princess characters at the Kids’ Zone, which will be free and open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.See Also: Memorial Day Celebration in Downtown Franklin See Also: Memorial Day in Fairview
