TOMAHAWK - While waiting for spring to get here, one group of high schoolers is jumping ahead, all the way to summer. A sports and entertainment marketing class at Tomahawk High School is planning a big party. They're working with the Tomahawk Chamber to host the first annual Party in the Park in July.

The event will have food, fun, and entertainment for the whole family. Students are organizing all aspects of the event, as well as designing flyers and getting the word out.

"Kind of give them a real world experience, give them a real job, not just something their simulating. So it's a win-win for the whole community," says Tamra Anderson, Tomahawk Chamber Executive Director.

The students have encountered some challenges. But the chamber director has been impressed with the students hard work so far.

"It's been really fun. I've been in the classroom for about three weeks working with them now. It's a total great experience for my self working with the students. We've had a lot of fun. We have some really, really talented students in the class," says Tamra Anderson.

The class still has a lot to do before the event. That includes doing work after school finishes in summer. But they say it's been worth it.

"It's been a fun experience but it also has deadlines and those deadlines have to be met." says Slava Perrodin, a senior in the class.

The event is set to kick off the summer holiday in Tomahawk on July 3rd in Veterans Memorial Park.
