Picnic Pops—a tradition since 1961—is Saturday, May 21 at Pioneer High School

Picnic Pops, the annual city-wide ice cream social, will be held from 10 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. Saturday, May 21 on the lawn of Pioneer High School.  In case of rain, the action moves indoors.

Children at a previous Picnic Pops run through the grass outside Pioneer High School.
A cake decorating contest is part of the fun.

The much-anticipated event—which began in 1961—features music from the bands and orchestras of Pioneer, Huron, Skyline, Slauson, Tappan, Forsythe, Scarlett and Clague. This year’s special guests will be musicians from Tuebingen, Germany.
