Papa Hip plays Picnic in the Park

By From page A7 | August 20, 2013

Papa Hip brings its eclectic mix of rock, jazz, R&B and soul to Picnic in the Park on Wednesday, Aug. 21. Papa Hip — John Burton, drums; Owen Jackman, bass; Steve Hopcraft, lead vocals, keyboards and harmonica; Lenny Goldberg, guitar; and Don Coats, saxophone — is a Picnic in the Park favorite whose music focuses on songs with a political and social message. Music starts at 5 p.m. and is sponsored by Davis Food Co-op.

The market is open from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. every Wednesday. Summer season is in full swing with plenty of melons, apricots, nectarines, peaches, plums, greens, corn, avocados, tomatoes, peppers and strawberries plus local eggs, honey, wine, beef and lamb. Crafts are at the north end of Central Park, near Fourth and C streets.

Bring a picnic from home or buy dinner from one of the many vendors. Davis Soroptimists will pour Sudwerk beer and local wine, with proceeds going to local charities.

Children’s entertainment includes Central Park’s bicycle-powered carousel, Rocknasium’s climbing structure, bounce houses, face-painting, pony rides by Greenwich Acres and balloon-maker Dilly Dally the Clown.
