Pickup Parties

Help keep Winchester beautiful while having fun with each Pickup Party theme (the City's new twist on the traditional Community Cleanup event). Come dressed in the theme for that party and participate in activities to accumulate points for prizes. The more you participate the more you win! We'll bring the bags, gloves, and pickers. You bring the FUN!
