Cambridge Umbrella Daze
Umbrella Daze are back. Following a 10 year hiatus, Cambridge once again celebrated Umbrella Daze. The local Girl Scout troop provided family entertainment in Westside Park from 12-4 with a bouncy castle, Kitchen Chemistry booth, Friends of the Library gift basket raffle, kites, Cambridge Historical Museum, games, 4-H petting zoo, Volleyball tournament, ice cream social, food, and music.
In the evening, the new Classics entertained Cambridge in Veterans Park. Vendors served yummy brisket, jalapeno poppers
with cheese and bacon, Rachael’s chips, and other grilled summer favorites. At the same time, the Cambridge Activities Program featured a movie under the stars in Lake Ripley Park. Umbrella Daze was started in 1983. The original festival celebrated Cambridge as a vacation popular spot and grew into a 3-day event.
