The Mill Creek Park hosted an event titled Family Fun Friday on July 6 at the Fellows Riverside Gardens.
It was free to attend and was open to the public.
The theme of the event was bubbles, and there was a range of bubble related activities for children and their families.
Children made hand-made bubble blowers out of Styrofoam cups and plastic straws.
There was also a table where children were able to blow bubbles directly onto the table top using straws.
“This is the coolest thing I’ve ever done,” said Logan Naughton while he blew bubbles onto the table.
Children were also welcome to partake in science experiments.
At one table children were able to test which bubble solution, home made or store bought, was better for bubble making.
There was also a table set up with different tools and brushes where children could experiment to see what they could or could not blow bubbles with.
Free face painting was also available.
Additionally, the Metro Parks provided Salvia plants for children to pot and take home for themselves.
All supplies were provided by Mill Creek Park.
The event occurs every week on Friday’s at Fellows Riverside Garden, each week has new activities and different themes.
