Registration open for FAMILY MUD FUN
Hands On!-A Child’s Gallery, the children’s museum on Main Street, is planning a FAMILY MUD FUN event scheduled for Friday, June 2 from 6:00 – 8:00 at Berkeley Park. You may have heard of the upcoming mud run to benefit Hands On! that will be a challenging 3 mile obstacle race in the mud, but this smaller family-oriented event will focus more on those families who enjoy the creativity and programs offered at Hands On!
FAMILY MUD FUN will include muddy games for kids and adults of all ages. The youngest participants will enjoy painting with mud, finding worms in the mud and other creative muddy activities. Children ages 11 and under can enjoy a 1 mile mud run. And, even the parents can participate in activities like tug-of-war in the mud.
Tickets for the event are $20 per child ages 2 & up, and this includes a t-shirt if registered by May 10, a hamburger meal, live music and muddy games and fun! Participation is limited and will be cutoff when filled. You can register for the event by visiting handsonwnc.org and registering online.
This event is made possible through the generosity of two premiere sponsors: Drs. Richard & Alison Reid of Reid & Reid Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics and Park Ridge Health. There is no charge for attending parents, and they are able to purchase a meal online during registration and can purchase beer for cash at the event. Other sponsors include Green Light Ink, Lyndsey Simpson Graphic Design, Ingles and Finish Line BBQ.
All proceeds from this event benefit Hands On!. The mission of Hands On! is to provide children and families with “hands on” educational exhibits and science programs that stimulate the imagination and motivate learning in a fun, safe environment.
