CENTERVILLE, OH: Who wants to have BIG fun in the sun on the last day of July? The Centerville-Washington Park District’s BIG Backyard Party is returning for its fifth year! The day will be filled with hands-on activities all ages and abilities can enjoy — fishing, archery, face painting, raffles, inflatables, a Euro Bounce trampoline and more! Grab some lunch from Godown’s Fixins food truck and a cool treat from Kona Ice.

The party starts at 11:00 a.m. and runs until 2:00 p.m. at Oak Grove Park on Saturday, July 31. The day is made possible by several ongoing community partnerships. 4 Paws for Ability, the Noon Optimist Club of Centerville, Sustainable Centerville and the Washington-Centerville Public Library will all be present at the party.

This event is free to attend and open to all ages. Register online at or call (937) 433-5155 to register. Registration is not required but assists the park district with planning.
