Celebrating 30 years!! Do you and your kids enjoy the family fun of the UC Celebration? Would you like to meet some of your neighbors who are volunteering to make a 30 year UC summer tradition an even bigger success? Do you want to make a difference in our community? Then let’s create some memories and Celebrate together. Festivities begin early at Standley Park with a 5 K fun run and end with a concert on the lawn. In between there is a bike and pet parade, book sale, kids activities, car show, beer and wine pavilion, vendor and community group booths and much more. Standley Park is a fun and family friendly venue with playground and large grassy area located at 3585 Governor Drive in University City.
