Carson Park Entrance: Message Center

Print

Carson Park Message Center SignWe are excited to have the capability to advertise the hundreds of events that take place in Carson Park each year. This sign can assist your organization in selling tickets, promoting attendance at your events and creating awareness of your events and organization. We will post basic event information on the day of your event. This is always included with the special event application fee or your lease fee. Here is an example of the wording: Tonight North vs. Memorial, Football, 7 PM.

We are offering you the opportunity to do additional advertising, in weekly, monthly or yearly intervals, on the Carson Park message center sign as long as it conforms to City Ordinance.
