Family Day Saturday at Turtle Rock Park

Alpine Kids will be hosting a free family day for Alpine County families and their guests from 2-7 p.m. Saturday at Turtle Rock Park.

The theme is "Family Dinner Together." Activities include story time and pictures with Mrs. Potts (Lynette Bennett) and Chip. Girls may want to wear their Disney Princess dresses for pictures taken by Gail Day. Families will be able to jump together as a family in the bounce house furnished by Kirkwood Mountain Resorts.

The Markleeville Library, First 5, The LPCC, the Women's Center and Choices for Children have crafts and other projects to help families create special dinners at home. Skip Veatch will be doing a sing-a-long. Alpine Children's Center will have music making and dancing for families. There are a lot more games and fun planned for the whole family to enjoy.

Tony Galvez and Dan Wilkerson will be barbecuing hamburgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers and beef tri-tip for the family dinner being served from 4-6 p.m.

Volunteers are needed to run the sack races, bounce house, limbo dance, set up and clean up and other miscellaneous tasks.

There will be some door prizes, but no prizes for the games. The games are just for families to have fun together.

To help offset the cost of the free dinner, cash donations for food have been received from Gary and Barbara Howard and the Alpine Family Support Council. Other donations are welcome.

Like all Alpine Kids' events, family day is drug and alcohol free. Smoking is not permitted inside or around the Turtle Rock Park Building.
