Special Events

Wednesday, June 21 – Hot Air Balloon visit after KidsGames!

Plan to pick up your kids and line up by the fence on the north side of the parking lot by 12:40.  We will take groups of kids in, a few at a time, so that they can see the balloon up close and maybe even go inside!

Thursday, June 22 – Firetruck visit after KidsGames!

Plan to pick up your kids and take them to the field by 12:40.  The Byron Center Fire Department will bring a truck and spray their hoses near the field next to the parking lot.  The kids love to run through the water and usually get soaked!  Bring towels for the ride home!

Friday, June 23 – Celebration,  6:00-8:30pm!

Come and celebrate what the kids have learned!  We will have inflatables, a hot dog wagon, ice cream, games, and demonstrations from many of our tracks.  Weather permitting, it will be a carnival atmosphere, outside on the field at Nickels.  And it’s all free!  Plan to come and bring the whole family! Everyone is welcome!
