Having fun at Picnic in the Playground

Picnic in the Playground took place at Bay Horizon Park on May 18. Hosted by Blaine-Birch Bay Park and Recreation District 2, the event featured fun activities for kids as well as a summer cookout with hamburgers and hot dogs. It coincided with Kids to Parks Day, an initiative of the National Park Trust (NPT) that aims to connect kids and families with local, state and national parks. Kids to Parks Day was launched in 2011 and occurs annually on the third Saturday in May. “By teaching our kids to appreciate and enjoy our public lands, we can foster future outdoor enthusiasts and create the next generation of park stewards and caretakers of these important places,” said the NPT website. “Because kids need parks – and parks need kids!”
