It will be a year come July when it was first announced the new name of the Horse Farm would possibly be announced last fall.

Seasons changed and nary a word was uttered.

However, the suspense ends sometime around 12:30 p.m., May 14 at the Party in the Park’s fundraising festival at the 100-acre green and shaded entity on Johnston Street.
