Families can shovel sand, not snow. Everyone is invited to join in Friday, Jan. 25 or Saturday, Jan. 26, from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Eastman Nature Center in Elm Creek Park Reserve, Dayton, for its annual “Winter Beach Party.”
Build sand sculptures while playing at our indoor “beach.” No need for sunscreen while you are “fishing” at our lake. Dig for seashells, play beach games, race minnows, and learn to hula.
Parents can bring a camera to take a picture of their beach bums dressed up in tropical attire. Enjoy live animals, face painting, and tropical crafts. Snack provided; feel free to bring a beach-side picnic. Wear a swimsuit and get a prize.
Cost is $5 per child age 2+ and $3 per adult. Children under 2 are free. Drop in anytime.
