Friday, April 23 is National Picnic Day, so we’re celebrating with a Teddy Bear Picnic in the Park! Join us at the Bill Yeck Park Smith House from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.

Bring your own dinner or purchase meals from the Claybourne Grill food truck, then spread out among the shaded Smith House grounds to enjoy fresh spring air with your family and stuffed furry friends!

The Teddy Bear Picnic will include themed partnership activities with We Care Arts — a scavenger hunt with photo opportunities, a craft available for purchase and giveaways!

Kona Ice will be available for purchase and as a prize for completing the scavenger hunt.
