An overflow crowd of families parked for blocks around and filled Animal Acres park on Saturday, September 9, 2017 for the Picnic in the Park. 

Families happily spilled over into the brand new Eagle Scout Park across the street, where children played on the new playground equipment in a fenced enclosure while adults sat and ate.



At the main event, there were wonderful activities for the children. The City brought in bouncy houses. The Lake Forest Park Youth Council had handouts about their work and flower pot painting for the younger children.


The petting zoo and the City trucks were kid favorites.
Shoreline/LFP Arts Council had a coloring table for the little ones. North City Water District had a bean bag toss - with a water theme, of course!


Tim Noah, who has been a star in kid concerts for three decades, brought his act to the Showmobile stage.


There was a row of food trucks with meals, shaved ice, and donuts. Hawaiian Shaved Ice was popular all day, in spite of cooler outdoor temperatures.


For the adults, LFP Rotary set up a beer garden. LeRoy Bell and His Only Friends provided an adult concert and closed the program a little past four.
