PINE ISLAND – Family Central will host their 2nd Annual “Ladybug Picnic”, a family-friendly event on Saturday, June 16, from 4 – 7pm, at the Pine Island Town Park (Kay Road off County Route 1).
Bring your picnic basket and blanket and join us for this fun filled family event. Witness the joy and curiosity your child will experience when handfuls of Ladybugs are released into the park’s pollinator garden. Greenwood Lake Garden Center’s owner, Stacy Lawrence, will be on hand to educate the children on the ladybugs’ important role in the environment. Carlos Cardona, a local musician, will play popular tunes on his guitar for all to enjoy. We also encourage you to bring an instrument and create your own “band.”
Families will enjoy our arts and craft area with ladybug-themed projects. There is also an exciting ladybug hunt, just like an egg hunt but with painted ladybug rocks instead! For those kids who love full body exercise we will have an old-fashioned “onion sack” race and a jump rope contest.
Pine Island Town Park is a great little park where guests may also visit the Butterfly Garden and playground area. Bring a book to swap at the Little Free Library in the park. Parking and bathroom facilities are available. For information, contact FamilyCentralNY@gmail.com
