Kick off your Fourth of July Weekend early with this fun, family oriented event. Enjoy a variety of lawn games and traditional contests such as the egg toss, skillet throwing, sack races, watermelon seed spitting and more. There will be live music, a food vendor and even a Pet Parade. So bring the kids and dress up your favorite pooch or parakeet for a traditional patriotic family frolic.
Relays and game competitions start at 5:00 p.m. Participants in some games (egg toss, pudding eating contest) may want to bring a change of clothes.
The Pet Parade will kick off promptly at 6:00 p.m. Please have paws on the starting line prior to that time.
Also, please remember that dogs must be on a six-foot, hand-held leash at all times in Florida State Parks.
Charcoal grills are available for cook-outs on a first-come, first-served basis.
