Centerville Park Programs
In this challenging budgetary environment, with strong community support and through generous donations, sponsorships, and volunteers; Centerville's Parks and Recreation Committee has continued to improve park facilities and activities.
Music in the Parks
Attendance of the Music in the Parks program has become a huge success and features a wide range of musical venues. The Committee is receiving musical assistance from Committee Member Brian Peterson, from selection of music and musicians to assistance with equipment. The sound system has been purchased with proceeds from the Fete des Lacs 5 and 8K run/walks throughout the years. The Committee extends their gratitude to all participants and sponsors.
The Music in the Parks Program runs on Tuesday evenings June-August at Hidden Spring Park with musical selections ranging from heavy metal, classical jazz to children's favorites. Bring the lawn chair, blanket, spouse, significant other, kids and have a great time!
Join the Committee for a relaxing evening to hear local musicians. Please follow us on Facebook.
Main Street Market
Local artisans, crafters and food trucks. Thursday evenings from 5:30-7:30 p.m. from July-August. The vent takes place on Centerville Road just west of the Centerville Elementary School parking lot. Please follow us on Facebook.
Bald Eagle Waterski Show
The Bald Eagle Waterski Show has been providing free shows on Centerville Lake every Thursday evening for many years. Their location is at Trailside Park. The park is located near the sharp bend in Main Street/CSAH14 near the Church of St. Genevieve. Many residents come out to see their fabulous shows. Their shows draw a large audience and begin in mid-June through the beginning of August. Come out and support them.
Movie in the Park
Annually, the Committee presents a Movie in the Park event. The event takes place at Laurie LaMotte Memorial Park and in September.
Trunk or Treat
The event is held in the Centerville Elementary School parking lot on the last Saturday of October, 9:30-11:30 a.m. Local businesses decorate their vehicles for Halloween and provide trinkets/candy for children and their parents. A Touch a Truck event also takes place where a City snowplow, Centennial Lakes Police squad car, Centennial Fire District fire engine and M-Health Fairview ambulance will be on site for sitting in and honking the horns.
Annually, the Committee provides two Skate/Sled events at Laurie LaMotte Memorial Park (January/February). Sledding and Ice Skating are offered within the park and Wargo Nature Center provides fat tire bikes, snowshoes and kicksleds. Free popcorn, hot cocoa, smores and a bonfire are also offered.
