The annual Lake Forest Park Picnic in the Park at Pfingst Animal Acres ran from 10am until 3pm on Saturday, September 7, 2019.

The weather was cloudy but comfortable in the high sixty's. Parking was limited along the streets but Brookside Elementary was a short walk away.

The little ones danced and tumbled to the music
of the Mark DuFresne Band

While the Mark DuFresne Band played, the tiny dancers were stage front spinning and jumping, tumbling and running back to Mom and Dad for approval.

There were many booths representing businesses and services.

How did we ever manage without food trucks?
There were food trucks - the Mexican truck had the longest lines.

Kids love to check out police vehicles
Lake Forest Park's finest had an SUV for the kids to examine.

Two bounce houses and still there were lines

Lines were long for the Bounce Houses.

The Arts Council had arts and crafts activities

The bean bag toss has been popular for a century

The Bean Bag toss by the North City Water District booth was popular with the kids and gave away lots of prizes.

Speedy the turtle fascinated the kids

The Animal Petting Zoo had rabbits, chickens, pigs, goats, alpacas, and donkeys for the kids to pet. Speedy the Turtle was a favorite of the little ones.

After the visit to Animal Acres many went next door to the Eagle Scout Park for the slide and other pieces of playground equipment.

It was a fine day to be a kid and a great day to be in Lake Forest Park!
