Dallas Old Timer picnic returns

DALLAS — A Dallas tradition since 1962, the reunion will once again gather “old-timers” in the Dallas City Park Gazebo on Aug. 7.

Event hosts Dallas Area Visitor’s Center (DAVC) and Dallas Retirement Village are adding events and hope to see it grow.

“We want people to know that there is no age limit for attendance,” said Bonnie Dreier, with the DAVC. “Our goal is to get the younger generation of ‘Old Timers’ involved.”

New activities are scheduled, including old-fashioned board games and a book signing by author Sue Hunter-Rohde, Dallas historian and co-author of the book “Images of America Dallas.”

The picnic runs 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The event is open to the public and provides free live music with the Old Time Fiddlers and Cash & Company, spaghetti lunch, memorabilia to look through, special guests and a chance to mix and mingle with others.

Guests are invited to bring yearbooks, Dallas memorabilia or photos.
