Each year the Old Fourth Ward Neighborhood Association hosts an annual picnic in June. Typically over 200 individuals participate in this outdoor potluck picnic. In addition to local residents, attendees include local officials, downtown business leaders, and leaders and members of local organizations.
The picnic takes place in the joint backyards of Ray Detter and Norm and Ilene Tyler on North Division Street. The event has no program, but is a wonderful opportunity to meet and talk with both friends and new acquaintances.
