In 75 years, University Park's residents have not only remained an active part of their community, but continue to be active members of the society at-large.
From artists to famed authors to Nobel Prize-winning scientists, the town's residents have left their mark on the world.
So on Sunday, the town has a lot to celebrate.
Coordinators Sarah Moseley and Beth Domingo have been planning the event for months and with the help of volunteers have collected oral histories and found new information on the town's history. They and other community volunteers will share that information and more with the Inside-Out Parade, or a line of information stations set up along Queens Chapel Road.
They are also hoping to recreate some of the town's most famous events like the visit from Queen Elizabeth to a plane crash. They will also dedicate the Christmas tree triangle as Henson Green, name after their most notable resident Jim Henson, creator of The Muppets. Henson's daughter, Heather, will perform especially for the town Sunday.
Sunday will also mark the inaugural walking tour, which will feature some of the town's most famous landmarks.
There will be pony rides, antique cars, sidewalk chalk art and more for the kids, plus performances by the University of Maryland Marching Band and more.
The event begins at 1:30 p.m. on the lawn of Bloomfield, the town's oldest home.
