TRENTON – It may have taken a while, but summer is finally here and the Town of Trenton wants you to join them and celebrate.
The Friends of Trenton Park Society in partnership with Trenton Parks and Recreation are once again hosting their Summer’s Here Celebration.
The annual family fun day will take place this Saturday, from 1 to 4 p.m. at Trenton Park Admission is $6 per child with no entrance fee for parents/adults. Free activities include wagon rides, face painting, bounce houses and swimming at the Trenton Park pool.
Information booths will be set up from the Pictou-Antigonish Regional Library, and the Trenton Park pool. Friendly the Giant Tiger will be passing out goodies to the kids. A concession stand will be on site with hot dogs, drinks and popcorn for $1 each.
Funds raised during the fun day will go towards holding future events at Trenton Park including a weekly movie night series this summer (Cinema Under the Stars), the Winter Family Fun Day (every February) and ongoing upgrades to Trenton Park such as trail signage and flower bed improvements.
