The Southern Humboldt Community Park is excited to host the Fifth Annual Walk in the Park and Fall Family Fair on Sunday, September 25th. The event will be held at Tooby Memorial Park, Sprowel Creek Road, Garberville. Check-in begins at 1pm. The Walk begins at 1:30pm and will take place on 2¼ miles of easy trail through the beautiful Community Park.
Throughout the day there will be activities and entertainment for the children including martial arts demos, music, games and crafts, horse and wagon rides, an electric cart farm tour and pony rides. Informational booths will be set up by local non-profits. Food booths will be provided by the schools. Family Fair activities will begin after the Walk and continue throughout the afternoon until 6pm.
In the afternoon, local experts will lead interpretive walks to the community farm, the labyrinth, about native plants and/or the scat & tracks found in the park. All the community is invited to join us and discover the beauty and diversity of our Community Park while supporting our children.
One entrance/registration fee covers all activities. Children under 5 are free, $5 for school students walking for pledges, $10 for children, $15-25 sliding scale for adults, or a $40 Family Pass.
Every early registrant will receive a Walk in the Park tote bag and on-site registrants will receive one as long as they last.
Entrance fees will go toward improvements and maintenance of Tooby Park Playground and education programs at the Community Park. Redway School, Skyfish School, Whitethorn School, the Home School Group, and South Fork Clubs are earning funds for their school through a pledge drive for The Walk and their food booths.
Register early. Pick-up forms at one of the schools, Blue Moon, Chautauqua, Signature Coffee, Café Bella or download the Walk in the Park Registration/Entrance Fee Form.
