Councilmember Harris is very excited to continue the wonderful tradition of Pops in the Park, started by Councilmember Josh Pane and a number of community members in 1991 and elevated to a major event by his predecessor on the Council, Steve Cohn. Pops in the Park is an opportunity to raise money for our under-funded neighborhood parks while bringing free, quality entertainment to the community. Sponsorship and advertising dollars, as well as proceeds from the sale of food and beverages at the events, have been used since 1995 to fund this event, enhance our neighborhood parks, bring improvements to the neighborhood and provide youth athletic scholarships.

-Clunie Pool Bike Racks & Sign
-McKinley Playground Rebuild
-Friends of East Sacramento (FOES) to help with first year start up to manage and maintain Clunie Community Center
