Teddy Bear Picnic

Calling all Teddy Bears and Owners! 

It's time once again for the Teddy Bears Picnic at Vickers Park from 12 noon - 3 pm on Tuesday, July 14, 2015.

Children, parents and teddy bears are invited to enjoy an afternoon of free crafts, activities and entertainment. This year's picnic features local entertainers including The Grumpy Grandpas, Rodney Brown, and Jim’n’I on the main stage.  The groups will have you and your teddy bear dancing all afternoon!

Highlights of the day include the Teddy Bear Parade and Boo Boo Bear Station to bandage much loved teddy bears.
