Park Day/ Nerf Battle

New Parents: The pictures on Google of Irving Park can be deceiving. Irving Park was reconstructed with new playground equipment and the sand was replaced with wood chips. The park is enclosed so even the little ones can roam freely while being watched from a distance. All kiddos, even the ones not doing Nerf, usually have a good time. Bring a lunch and join us!

Nerf enthusiasts: Join us for an Epic Battle on The Grid. Bring your guns, swords, crossbows, and axes. It's a friendly game with parents joining in on the action. No serious play just making sure all kiddos feel welcomed. 

*Homeschool Dads: This event is super Dad friendly. Bring your Nerf guns and have a good time*

When:  Friday, November 2nd 
Time:  12:00 - 2:00 p.m. 
Where:  Irving Park
