The Mid-Minnesota Women’s Center is presenting Family Fun Day -- a free day of games, activities and food 1-6 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 11, at Lum Park.

The second annual event doesn’t come with any of the cost constraints families may have felt last year, according to Lenora Zino, volunteer community relations coordinator at the women’s center.

“I really felt like last year some of the families struggled because the pottery cost money,” she said during a phone interview Thursday. “Well, if you have six kids, it was possibly a financial burden. So nothing costs anything (this year).”

Activities include face painting and other games with prizes, along with photo stations where attendees can take pictures with princesses and superheroes. Those on the guest list include Superman, the Hulk and Brainerd Police Officer Troy Schreifels as Batman, along with two princesses and a live “unicorn.”

Officials from the Brainerd Police Department, Brainerd Fire Department and North Memorial Ambulance will drive up in their vehicles and be available for a meet and greet, along with McGruff the Crime Dog.

Available food will include hot dogs, brats, snow cones, popcorn, cotton candy and root beer floats.

The Heartland Dance and Gymnastics groups will perform new routines at 1:30, 2:30 and 3:30 p.m.

The Brainerd Ski Loons will close the event with a grand finale show at 5 p.m.

“It’s going to be a mammoth party,” Zino said.

For questions or volunteer opportunities, call 218-828-1216.
