MARNE, Mich. (WOOD) – Maranda’s second Park Party of the summer was full of sunshine and smiling faces of over 3,800 people at Berlin Raceway on July 9.
The party took place on the racetrack and inside the pits with free rides, games and entertainment for families and friends to enjoy. Berlin Raceway even brought a monster truck and its driver to join in on the fun.
Dozens of vendors filled the track with their tents, handing out free educational information, services and activities. Our friends at Country Fresh were passing out ice cream sandwiches and Meijer provided fresh healthy snacks to keep everyone cool.
Park Party attendees were able to enjoy a free lunch, courtesy of the Michigan Department of Education and the area public schools.
Kids enjoyed a sunshine filled afternoon of free fun with activities like the brand new obstacle course, Ferris State University climbing wall and won prizes at the Craig’s Cruisers entertainment stage.
The fun continues all month long with three more parties coming to a park near you!
