Raceway’s Party at the Park wraps up on Aug. 28Written by Amy Biolchini | | ABiolchini@toledofreepress.com
The final Party at the Park event for Raceway Park, features Indiana-based band Hoozier Daddy on Aug. 28. The event coincides with Raceway’s first charity event with Toledo’s Harley Davidson dealership.
“It’s an end of the summer blowout,” said John McNamara, director of marketing at Raceway Park. Harley Night starts at 4 p.m. and will last as long as live racing occurs.
There will be a raffle for a trip to Hollywood Casino in Lawrenceburg, Ind., and a separate parking lot for the throngs of Harleys.
“Anytime it’s a big collection of motorcycles it turns into an ad hoc bike show,” McNamara said. “We’ll definitely cater to the bikers that night.”
Admission is $2 for adults and $1 for kids and veterans. Proceeds from the event go toward Ohio Veterans Home in Sandusky. The home serves homeless veterans, something McNamara said was particularly important to Raceway.
“We’ve done a lot with other charities, but haven’t really done anything with veterans.
We’re definitely grateful for what they do and wanted to help them out,” McNamara said.
