The West Fargo Park District’s 2020 Senior Picnic will still happen this year, on Thursday, August 13, but some major changes have been made due the Covid-19 pandemic.

This event will be changed to a drive-thru pick-up on Thursday, August 13 at the Rustad Recreation Center Parking lot.


Participants must call 701-433-5360 to register this event, or stop in the office at Rustad Recreation Center. Please remember this event is for West Fargo residents who are 65 and over, only. Meals will be limited to the first 250 people who sign-up. When calling to register, you will need to select a meal pickup time, either 11:00 AM or 12:00 PM. Only 125 people per time slot will be allowedto ensure the parking lot isn’t over crowded during this event.


There will be a drive-through meal pick up on Thursday, August 13. Participants will remain in their car the entire time, ensuring social distancing is taking place. Staff will be required to wear PPE throughout the entire event and will be extremely cautious of following all safety guidelines. Participants will need to check in when they arrive to verify registration and then proceed to the next spot and will be handed a prepackaged meal from Hornbachers.

"We are excited to be able to still offer this event with these modifications," said Katie Ettish, Park District communications specialist. "And we look forward to seeing everyone soon."
