Calgary invites all to a fun family picnic

May 14, 2017 by  

Calgary’s Marda Loop Community Centre will be playing host to a community celebration in support of Give a Mile, and everyone from the neighborhood is welcome to get in on the fun.

The day will feature an assortment of activities for young and old alike. There will be yoga for kids, a face painter, a hockey shootout, food, balloons and ice cream trucks. Kids can make and then decorate their own kites to take home, and there will also be a general crafting table set up where they can make their own creations.

All of this is taking place in support of Give a Mile, which is an organization that helps meet the cost of airline travel for families with a member who is either critically ill or receiving palliative care so they can spend time together. The ticket price has been set at $20, and kids who are 16 and under will be admitted free of charge. Pop -p banners can be created by a printer for use during an event such as this, and they can then be reused during other functions.

This Picnic in the Park event will take place on June 4 from 2:00 pm until 5:00 pm in the Madera Loop Community Centre. Additional details can be found on its Facebook page.
