All day activities on Family Day in Ponoka

Family Day in Ponoka promises to be an action-packed day full of fun for the whole family on Monday.

Events are scheduled all day at Lions Centennial Park on Highway 2A, where there will be skating all day on the ice skating trail.

Other Family Day activities in the park include hotdogs and hot chocolate from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., face painting from noon to 3 p.m., hay rides from 1 to 3 p.m. and a bonfire from noon to 3 p.m.

Admission to the Lions Centennial Park activities is through a donation to the Ponoka Food Bank.

The Family Day fun continues at the Ponoka Aquaplex, with a free everyone welcome swim from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.

Activities will be moved to the arena if necessary due to weather.

“So far, the weather for next Monday looks favourable for an outdoor event at this time of year, so we’re optimistic that all of the planned activities in the park will go ahead without any weather-related concerns,” says Ponoka Mayor Rick Bonnett.

He notes last year, the hay rides and bonfire were cancelled due to frigid temperatures and the event was moved indoors at the arena.

“We think Mother Nature will be on our side this year and it should be an enjoyable event for all of the families that attend,” says Bonnett.
