Teddy bear picnic

Thursday’s the day the teddy bears have their picnic. It’s not quite in the woods and you don’t have to wear a disguise. From 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, the Dickson Store Museum will host a teddy bear picnic with crafts, games, music, prizes and brunch. People are invited to bring their own stuffed friends for a teddy bear hunt. Admission is $2 but space is limited, so people are asked to reserve their spots. Call 403-728-3355 for reservations and information.

Be sure to register in advance for the Dickson Store Museum teddy bear picnic because space is limited.
