AIRIGAMI-the fine art of molding air! 

We are thrilled to announce that this year will feature the amazing work of Airigami!  This incredible Rochester based artist duo, along with their skilled staff, create larger than life balloon sculptures all over the world for awe inspired audience.  Airigami will be setting up at Picnic in the Park to create a one-of-a-kind sculpture for our community, with the help of YOU, the audience!  Participants will help blow up and sculpt the balloon sculpture with the help of Larry and Kelly, the artists.  Check out their amazing portfolio of work here!  

 This year's Picnic will kick off once again with our annual Kiddie Parade at 11:30am!  Kids are encouraged to ride their bikes to the park, decorate them in our provided patriotic embellishments and open the day with a parade of bikes down Ellicott Ave.  Kids should arrive by 11am to decorate!
