05/28/2019- Kick-off summer with an event for the entire family next weekend. Family Recreation Day will be held Saturday, June 1st at the Great Lakes Memorial Marina Park in Menominee. This annual event features several activities all day long, beginning with a 5K run/walk support the Marinette Police K9 Unit and ending with hundreds of ping pong balls raining down from an Enstrom helicopter. Organizer Joe Peacock says sponsorships from area businesses and organizations allow the day to be put on free of charge to guests.
Peacock says pets are as much a part of the family as anyone else and there will be plenty of opportunities for attendees to show off their furry family members at the event, including a pet pageant and a Pier Pups dock jumping competition.
Family Recreation Day runs from 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM, but registration for the K9 Run/Walk starts at 7:00 AM. More information can be found online at familyrecreationday.com or on the event’s Facebook page.
