Nov. 14: Spaghetti Day

The 8th Annual Spaghetti Day will be on Nov. 14 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the A. C. Brase Arena.  This is our largest and most attended Cape Girardeau Parks and Recreation Foundation fundraiser that we host each year. It’s a fun time for family, friends, and everyone to enjoy!

Come join us for spaghetti, mostaccoli, garlic bread, salad, drinks and desserts. Also, the Jerry Ford Orchestra will be there to entertain. Adults (13+) are $6, children (5-12) are $5, and children under four are free, however donations are accepted. If you can’t make it in on the Nov. 14, you just stop by and take food to go or even have your spaghetti delivered.

The funds go to the Parks and Recreation Foundation, which was created in 1991 to help the Parks and Recreation Department with capital fundraising campaigns, projects, equipment fundraising events and various programs. City staff works directly with our Foundation Board and other volunteers on the annual Spaghetti Day event and other fundraisers throughout the year.

Examples of recent projects funded in part by the Cape Girardeau Parks and Recreation Foundation include athletic field improvements at the Shawnee Park Sports Complex, Arena Park Sports Complex and Capaha Field; golf course equipment; community center equipment including basketball goals, portable scoreboards and fitness equipment; recreation program equipment; special event equipment including a portable public address system and aquatics equipment.
