Special thank you goes to Robin Fine who pioneered this event.

We are encouraging parents to keep an watchful eye on children especially under the age of 11. Bring flash lights, glow sticks and glow-in-the-dark clothing or light-colored clothing to see them in the dark.  

Rain date: Saturday June 20

Our new event will have:

Vending of home baked goods; hot drinks like coca, tea & coffee to keep us warm; and a few things that glow. AAA is bringing about 3 telescopes to view in. We will chalk-out a scaled down solar system on the black top. A craft table or two to have a bit more fun.  We will have a set up for 'light-painting' photography.

PLEASE note: This our second event using Wild Apricot (our website platform) requesting for volunteers. Volunteering park members please give us feedback if this worked out nicely.
