Family Central will host their 3rd Annual “Ladybug Picnic,” a family-friendly event, on Fri., Jun. 14 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Pine Island Town Park, located at 18 Kay Rd. in Pine Island. Family Central is an all-volunteer parenting support network for parents and caregivers of children from birth through adolescence.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a picnic basket and blanket and to witness the joy and curiosity the children will experience when handfuls of ladybugs are released into the park’s pollinator garden. Experts will be on hand to educate the children on the ladybugs important role in the environment. Local musician Brian Corbin will be playing live music for all ages to enjoy.
Families will enjoy the arts and craft area with ladybug-themed projects. There will also be an exciting ladybug hunt, just like an egg hunt but with painted ladybug rocks instead! There will also be cooperative games, an old-fashioned “onion sack” race, and a jump rope contest. Parking and bathroom facilities are available.
