Attendees will be able to visit with Shakespeare as he roams the park and take photos. A photo booth with costumes will also be available.
“We went all out this year on activities and entertainment to please Shakespeare lovers of all ages and introduce a new generation to the Bard,” said Commissioner R. Jack Cagle. “My staff and I worked hard to make this event something every generation could appreciate while staying true to Shakespeare’s vision.”

A historic oak tree that residents once rallied to save is getting its own Precinct 4 park.
Located near T.C. Jester and Louetta, the more-than-a-century-old tree has ties to Klein's original German settlers. Residents say celebrations and photos under the tree were common when the Strack family operated the Strack Farms Restaurant and reception hall on the property.
