A family friendly way to spend a summer morning at the Visitors Center. Play old fashioned lawn games (bean bag toss, horse shoes, nine pins, frisbee, hula hoops, etc.), jump in a bounce house, get your face painted by Heart Body Arts, and more. On hot mornings, there will be sprinklers–bring a towel. Enjoy some refreshments from a vendor to be announced.

At 10:00 each week, enjoy a special guest program geared toward children ages 5 through 12 and their parents and guardians. Admission, games, bounce house, and programs are free. There is a charge for face painting and the refreshments.

Bounce house and programs sponsored by contributions to the Tourism Gift Account by local businesses, non-profit groups, and individuals.
