The Thriving Families Alliance will be sponsoring a free family fun day from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at Bayliss Park.
The event, titled Squeeze the Day and Play, will feature games, entertainment, art projects, snacks, exercises, an inflatable obstacle course and other activities.
“These are hands-on activities throughout the event,” said Karen Allen, project coordinator for Thriving Families Alliance.
In a game called The Web of We, each person takes a long yarn and wraps it around posts containing messages they can relate to, Allen said. Each message is accompanied by a different message.
In a large-scale art project, each participant paints a tile.
“Each person will have the opportunity to paint a piece, and each piece will fit together with all the others,” Allen said.
In an individual art project, participants will create a new logo for All Care Health Center and draw it on a sticker.
