‘Today’s the day the teddy bears have their picnic…’

Parents and kids made their way around Gyro Park constructing bubble makers, mending sick teddies and getting their faces painted.

The weather cooperated with sunshine and a slight breeze for this year’s Teddy Bear Picnic on Wednesday at Gyro Park.

With the sun shining, parents and kids made their way around the park, constructing bubble makers, fixing up sick teddy bears at the teddy bear hospital, getting their faces painted, listening to live music and sitting down for story time.

There was even a clown handing out ballon bears and freezies to kids and parents. Concession was open for those that got a bit hungry.

Different community organizations set up tents around the park to educate attendees about different causes and groups, as well as giving out a few freebies such as reusable tote bags.
