The Woods plans Family Day June 8

It’s a zoo out there! So enjoy a zoo-related day with the Sisters of Providence at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods.

Family Day at the Woods will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. June 8 at Foley Park, in front of Providence Center. All activities and refreshments are free.

Children will have the chance to play in a duck pond, get their face painted featuring a zoo animal, take part in zoo-related crafts, in addition to taking part in a football toss event. New this year will be a zoo obstacle course, animal ring toss, a fish cup challenge and zoo animal dice.

Hayrides also will be available, as will alpaca shuttle tours, prizes and booth bingo where folks receive a stuffed animal or game for visiting a certain number of booths during the day.

Also returning this year will be the Sugar Creek Fire Department ladder truck and Larry Black, the motorcycle-riding animal-balloon clown.
