Festival of Fun planned for Lampe Park

Staff reports

Festival of Fun, the Douglas County Park and Recreation Department’s kick-off to summer will be held June 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Lampe Park

“The festival is our way of celebrating Parks and Recreation Month in July,” said Sheryl Christian, coordinator of the event. “And it will be a great way for the off-track kids to start their summer vacation,”

The day promises to be jam-packed with fun and excitement; from carnival booths to magic shows, goat cart rides and crafts for the kids. Demonstrations of some of the popular Parks and Recreation classes will be held at various times during the festival. And C.C. the Clown will perform a magic show.

Tables will be set up by age group throughout the park with information about the many Parks and Recreation programs planned for the summer. Children are invited to stop by to learn more about the activities, and to work on a craft project.

“The Parks and Recreation Department has activities for everyone,” said Christian. “From pre-kinder through adult, there is something for everyone.”

Youth organizations and clubs will host many of the carnival and food booths. For a nominal fee, children can test their skill to win prizes, or buy Indian tacos, hot dogs, sodas and sno-cones. Raffle tickets will be sold at the event, with an assortment of exciting prizes, including baseballs autographed by Shawn Estes.

“Parks and Recreation has so much to offer,” said Christian. “This is a way to showcase our events and activities so that the public is aware of what we have to offer.”
