Many thanks to all of the talented photographers who submitted their beautiful park photos in our 1st ever photo contest! From over 500 entries – so many stunning photos! – our panel (with help from you on the People’s Choice award) had the tough job of narrowing the field down to these 25 winning photographs that truly capture how we feel about Patterson Park.
All of these inspiring photos are on display at Bistro R/x (corner of Baltimore and Linwood) until May 23th, and then they’ll be auctioned at our Winetasting at Sunset benefit, outside near the historic fountain May 26th.
Join us for a celebratory HAPPY HOUR at Bistro R/x from 5-7 p.m. on Monday, May 16th to view the photos and hang out with fellow Friends of the park. Winetasting tickets will be available for purchase ($55) at the Happy Hour if you haven’t gotten yours yet!
