Thank you Bloomingdale!

We are pleased to announce that this year’s Community Day and Yard Sale featuring the Taste of Bloomingdale was an enormous success!  Hundreds of area residents spent part of their Saturday browsing the yard sale, tasting food from area restaurants, learning about local community organizations, and listening to great music, all with the purpose of supporting the park. And it worked! Together, we raised enough funds to cover around half of Crispus Attucks Park’s operating budget for the entire year.

Thank you to everyone who participated—yard sale vendors, shoppers, non-profits, and especially our local businesses and restaurants who donated precious time and resources to help maintain the unique community resource that is Crispus Attucks Park.

And thank you to everyone who took time out of their Saturday to support Crispus Attucks Park. We hope everyone who came enjoyed the beautiful weather and had a wonderful time!

These restaurants and businesses (in no particular order) supported this year’s event. Please make it a point to thank and show your support for them!
