Activities provided will be suitable for the whole family. Come and enjoy an old-fashioned day at a beautiful shady park that overlooks the Peace River. There will be games for everyone, tunes played by local musicians, a painted rock hunt and face painting for the kids, and other nonprofit organizations will be present.
