Jeopardy on the Parkway will be held at 8:00 on Friday Night at the Julian Price Park Amphitheater.
A ranger will also lead a program about plants and wildlife that call a pond home during a 40-minute on Saturday night at 7:30 at the Julian Price Park Amphitheater.
A “Puppets on the Parkway” program will be held on Sunday evening at 6:00 at the Julian Price Park Amphitheater. This program will last about 45 minutes and will teach children how a sunflower makes its own food.
As always these events are free and open to the public.
