Swiss Avenue Picnic

Swiss Avenue is celebrating its centennial this year, and the neighborhood put together an old-fashioned picnic.

Despite a few dark clouds, the weather held out. Folks enjoyed old-time banjo music, food from Whole Foods, and tasty gelato served by the Paciugos themselves.

The Dallas Police Department closed off the street in front of the house hosting the event, and kids of all ages enjoyed riding their bikes up and down the traffic-free street.

Swiss Avenue Historic District Forum

Swiss Avenue’s Candidate forum was held at the Aldredge House tonight, and was attended by council candidates for Districts 14 and 2.

Although the forum was very short, it was good to hear an update on Swiss Avenue neighborhood issues. The Swiss home tour is coming up, and this is the centennial celebration for the neighborhood. The neighborhood is also working on a plan to beautify the medians, in partnership with the Parks Department.
