Campers will get one last chance to see their counselors before summer ends, and families can enjoy a bunch of free activities at the Parks and Recreation’s Fun Day at the Park on Friday, Aug. 10.
“It’s a grand finale to our summer,” said Camp Coordinator Kelly McCabe, who organizes the event. “It’s really nice for them to have one last time to see all of the counselors and the lifeguards.”
If the weather holds out, McCabe expects to see a few hundred people come out to Norton Park to enjoy the festivities, which run from 1 to 3:30 p.m. The event is open to all.
One of the most popular Fun Day activities each year is the dunk tank, where campers can soak their counselors after a summer of following them around. “The kids definitely get a kick out of that,” McCabe said.
There will also be face-painting, spin art, temporary tattooing and pony rides. And the park playground is nearby.
“I think it’s really great for the families to have a free event with all these activities,” McCabe said.
