A free event at Sunset Park in Sturgeon Bay this Saturday is the unofficial kickoff to summer as local schools have officially reached summer break.
The annual event will begin at 10:00 a.m. and run until 2 p.m. and have events for kids of all ages. The City of Sturgeon Bay, the YMCA and Door County Public Health are sponsoring the event and are adding their own flair to the event. From having a juggler and a musical entertainer there throughout the day, to demonstrations from Sturgeon Bay Fire and Police Departments, Sturgeon Bay Municipal Services Assistant Colleen DeGrave talks about the event as a whole and the ability to get kids involved and outside during the summer.
Light rain forecasted for Saturday won’t wash out the event DeGrave said, as anything non-severe will be partied through. Beginning at 11:30, there will be a fun-run where the participants receive a t-shirt. From 12-2 there are opportunities for creations from a balloon artist, and then a balloon drop at 1:45 p.m.
