All are welcome to join this 1/4 mile lap run.  It would add to the fun to get a sponsor who will contribute whatever amount for each lap you run, but not necessary.  Be at the park by 11:am.

There will be a large inflated obstacle section, hurdles, small tunnel frame, riding balls, low balance beam, a 6.5’ rock wall, step-in tires, etc.  Some of these sections will have water sprays. Bring a change of clothes and a towel.  Wear active wear and sports shoes.  There will be a run for adults and one for kids.

Participants toss a water balloon back and forth. The last one with an un-popped balloon wins.

Piñatas       12:45pm

There will be two Piñatas. One for kids and one for adults. All are welcome to try your hand at breaking it or just getting its bounty.

Fishing Pond 12:45pm

There will be a small pool so kids can go “fishing”. There are toy prizes for those who “catch” a plastic fish with a magnet.
