Special Events – An NRPA member currently hosts an Easter egg hunt, Christmas tree lighting and 5Ks but is looking for more “out-of-the-box” Ideas. They would love to try is a Silent Disco night and want to know if others have hosted this event and how it went.

Several NRPA Members have chimed in with their ideas, including:

"A special event we put on is a “Daddy- Daughter Hair Workshop.” We get with a local salon in town and they come in and teach a class to fathers and daughters about how to do hair... "

"A few special events we have scheduled this year are Chalk Art in the Park Day (we will bring out the sidewalk chalk for all ages) and Watermelon Day at the Pool (on National Watermelon Day...)"

Other ideas shared include:

  • Family Campout in the Park
  • Wine Tastings
  • Barbeque competitions
  • Box-A-Rama – children’s competition for building things with everyday boxes
  • Family Scavenger Hunt
  • Canine Carnival
  • Kite & Rocket Day
