Ahhh… good times are just ahead. Bocce season is opening Friday Night and there’s a summer full of fun events ahead.

Friday Night, May 20th- West End Summer Bocce begins. It’s finally time to spend wonderful nights at DeMeo Park! Bocce is a most incredible social event- and lucky for us it is EVERY Friday night! Bring a dish to share.  The West End Neighborhood Association has procured a use permit that allows us to to drink a little wine (in the true Italian style) while we play bocce. The permit is only for Friday Night Bocce and folks participating in the event. This is a family and dog friendly event. Location: DeMeo Park  Time: 6:30 p.m. See Bocce 2010 Photo Gallery
