Wrap up summer with Old Fashioned Family Fun Picnic

Come join in on the fun on Saturday August 29 from 1 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Pavilion by the Agricultural Hall.

Summer and family time seem to go hand in hand. The long warm days lend for families to play and connect outside at parks, beaches and forests. Many parents try to take time off of work to spend time with the family and create wonderful memories. Whether you do a vacation or a staycation every day provides an opportunity to really connect with your child in an engaging way. It is not the quantity of time but the quality of time you spend with your child.

So what have you done with your kids this summer? Have you created lasting memories for your kids? Have you exposed them to new places or introduced them to new people? Summer is almost over but there is still time to have a few more adventures. In fact, Agassiz has a big event coming that you and your family will not want to miss.

Agassiz will be hosting an Old Fashioned Family Fun Picnic for you and your family to enjoy, bond and create lasting memories. Come join in on the fun on Saturday August 29 from 1 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Pavilion by the Agricultural Hall. The picnic focuses on fun games like the spoon and egg race, potato sack races and bean bag toss. Lunch will be available for purchase at the concession. This event was created to bring back the good old fashioned fun of families playing together and connecting with the community. This amazing event is sponsored by United Way, Success by 6, District of Kent, Agassiz Harrison Lions Club, Agassiz Harrison Early Years Committee, and Child Care Resource and Referral (CCRR). Come join the fun for this free event.
