Woodlawn Regional Park has announced that they will not be hosting the popular Beach Bash event this coming year, replacing it with a more family-friendly event.
"The board has decided to go with a different focus," explained Parks Manager, Joanne Schulte. "The focus is going to be on more of a family orientated event, instead of a Beach Bash."
"We're going to have a carnival styled event. We'll have a show tent with a showman performing three performances that day. We want to have a complete children's area that will have bouncy castles, our treasure hunt, petting zoo, and all the games that we had for Beach Bash, we'll have again for the kids, it'll just be expanded much more."
Shulte added that there will also be an Open Mic so anyone can come and showcase their talents. There will also be a flea market and some water events.
"It will consume the entire afternoon which is conducent to families getting out in the afternoon."
She added that there will be a small cost to attend to cover the costs of putting on the event.
The Carnival will be held on July 29th.
