As long as there has been a poll, this party has won the category. The University YMCA's springtime Pease Park bash celebrates Winnie-the-Pooh's forlorn donkey pal. The event has evolved, through the years, into a two-parter. The first, a kiddie-friendly, community day in the park, complete with games, face painting, treats for tots, and of course a visit from the Hee-Haw himself. As the day goes on, however, Pease Park becomes a sort of Woodstock, Jr., in spirit at least, as revelers join drum circles, worship Mama Earth, and do the mind dance. Our readers, for the ninth year running, have given this tradition two hooves up!
