Mill Creek Park hosts Family Fun Friday

Fellows Riverside Gardens hosted a Family Fun Fridays event on June 21.

The event is offered every summer by the park for children and their families.

Naturalist Lynn Zocolo organized the event, which runs from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.

“It’s just a fun way to bring the community together and give children the chance to get out doors,” Zocolo said.

During the event, children worked on crafts, making bracelets to take home.

The park organized bingo and sensory stations for children to play with.

Volunteers also helped run the event, running a science experiment station.

Children were able to use glasses of water topped with shaving cream to simulate how rain works.

“We use a dropped full of blue food coloring to show that the clouds can only hold so much weight before the water falls,” Zocolo said.

Free face painting was also available to the children.

The event is hosted every other Friday throughout the summer.
