WYOMING, Mich (WOTV) Thousands packed into Lamar Park in Wyoming to kick off the 2014 season of Maranda’s Park Parties.
“The turnout for today’s Park Party was fabulous! What a great way to kick off our 20th year of Park Parties. The support of our corporate partners, non-profit groups, station team, and the amazing community is overwhelming. I truly feel blessed that we can continue to offer a memorable day of free fun for West Michigan families,” said Maranda.
The Wyoming Park Party was packed with families who came early to enjoy a free picnic-style lunch in the park courtesy of the Michigan Department of Education and the area public schools.
Kids enjoyed an unforgettable afternoon of free fun with activities like the Fifth Third Super Slide, the Zip Line and great acts on the E.S.C.A.P.E. entertainment stage.
Lamar Park was filled with more than 50 different vendors providing a variety of free services, information and activities. The birthday themed celebration included cupcakes and cards courtesy of Meijer, balloons courtesy of WOOD TV8/WOTV 4 and free Country Fresh ice cream novelties from Country Fresh.
