Kingston Springs Memorial Day Picnic


The Kingston Springs Annual Community Picnic is held every Memorial Day in L.L. Burns Park. The Kingston Springs Fire Department set up their aerial truck with its giant flag to set the tone for the day.

Memorial Day is always the opening day for the SplashPad season which ran until 7 p.m. It was packed all day.

Over 400 people attended throughout the day and enjoyed different activities throughout the park. Bingo was called from 10 until 2 in the new Activity Center. Croquet, Disc Golf, Corn Hole, Volleyball and badminton were set up. Many folks walked down to the river and set up their chairs on “the beach”.

Kids 5 through 10 could participate in The Duck Hunt, a scavenger game that won them prizes or cash. All of the winning duck hunters were from Kingston Springs:

Madison Lydic, age 9; Nautica Burgess, age 6; Eli Swindle, age 8; Vanessa Foster, age 9; Alexis Carter, age 8; Jonathan Dronsella, age 6; Dewayne Foster, Jr, age 6. Madison, Alexis, and Dewayne all bagged their limit, finding 2 ducks each.

The Harpeth River Watershed Association was on hand with their water nature exhibition, showing the effects of littering on the health of the river.

BarBQ, hamburgers and hot dogs were served from the concession stand. The weather was absolutely perfect.
