Fall Fun Day!
October 6th, 2018
Start the fall season out right. On Saturday, October 6th bring the family out to Bowie Nature Park’s Fall Fun Day. The excitement begins at 10am and will go on until 3pm. The event is free and includes fall and nature themed activities for the whole family. Children and grown-ups alike are encouraged to wear costumes. Pumpkins for decorating and food from vendors will be available for purchase.
Park in the event field behind the playground and follow the signs to begin the fun. Your first stop will be just outside the Nature Center where you can grab a bag for your candy and get oriented by volunteers at the welcome table. Next up is the Pumpkin Patch where you can purchase a pumpkin to decorate and then you will be on to the bounce house for some much-needed bounce therapy. Inside the Nature Center you can enjoy making fall crafts. Now, just head out the back door where you can get your face painted and find the beginning of the Games Trail with nature and fall related carnival games stationed around this short trail behind the Nature Center. At each game station, children will win prizes or candy.
This year we are overly joyed to have a few guests from Montgomery Bell State Park joining us. Ranger Tim Wheatley will be bringing some of their ambassador animals to show and tell about their unique qualities. He will be presenting at 10:30am and again at 12:30pm.
Another new addition to the festivities includes free face painting by Fantasy Face Artistry.
This is a wonderful community event that could not happen without our amazing volunteers. Past volunteer groups have included Friends of Bowie Nature Park, Fairview High School’s HOSA club, Fairview Middle School’s Junior Beta Club, and Brentwood Highschool Students. Volunteers are always needed and individuals are always welcome. If you would like to volunteer for this event in any way, please contact Nancy Jackson at (615)799-5544 ext 2 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
