Hosted by Newark’s Parks and Recreation Department.
Games and activities at Handloff Park! The Newark Police Department will have a bicycle rodeo for children* and a free car seat safety check. Other activities, including pony rides, face painting and a small train will be available for a small fee. Food vendors (Roaming Raven, Duck Donuts and Dino’s Ice Cream) will be on site; families are also encouraged to bring a picnic to celebrate National Picnic Month.
Check out Newark Parks & Recreation’s Facebook page for event updates.
*For the bicycle rodeo: kids should bring their bike and helmet for an obstacle course that promotes good cycling skills, including turns, stops, hand signals, etc. Some bikes will be available to borrow.
In addition, many venues do not project an end time for their events. In those cases, we selected our best guess, but the duration of your event may vary.
