Pickerington Mayor, Lee Gray said he’s, “Happy the Picktown Palooza is coming back for another year and this time on higher dryer ground. Even with last year’s adversity -- flooding and missing some days -- they were able to make it a success. I love this City and have called it home since I was a child. It is great to have an event to provide fun and entertainment right in downtown Pickerington.”
“I am excited to have the opportunity to support a community event that will bring neighbors together for a few days. The health of any community extends beyond freshly paved roads and safe drinking water. Community leaders should always be seeking opportunities to partner with those who are doing great things for our residents,” said Violet Township Trustee Melissa Wilde. “I am thrilled that so many people are willing to volunteer their time to create a memorable experience for the families in Pickerington.”
Admission to the Palooza will be $5 per person each day when purchased at the gate. Children 12 and under are free.
