My children are long past the family day activities which take place each year in the local park, so it is not really on my radar. As I walked through the park on my way to do some errands, I was delighted to see the many people enjoying the many activities which were going on.
As I entered the park, I was met by an enormous truck - my head barely reached past the top of the wheels. Once in the park, I saw soldiers. They had set up a zipline across the "lagoon" and there was a long line of children eager to try it out.
This fellow was waiting for the men at the other side to send back the harness so another child could zip across.
It was delightful to see the joy and friendly interaction.
While I did not explore the whole area, I did walk past tables of people selling handmade goods, others sharing information about local organizations - a real sense of community and festivity.
