It’s not every day that you can stroll around Prospect Park and find a 100-ft zipline, a dunk tank and an obstacle run. Way to kick off Summer at the upcoming SeriousFun Messtival, with a great cause to boot. On Saturday June 25th in Prospect Park, SeriousFun Children’s Network is launching an event series benefiting kids with serious illnesses. The camp-inspired event is a really awesome way to spend a day outside with your kids, while supporting a wonderful organization.
SeriousFun, founded by the late actor & philantropist Paul Newman, brings the magic of camp for kids with serious illnesses – always free of charge. The Prospect Park event includes all kinds of cool activities for everyone – the kids are not the only ones having fun here!
- A mile-long run packed with fun obstacles. I wonder if I’ll be able to beat my 8-year old.
- A dunk-tank shaped like a giant BBQ sauce bottle. You get three chances to dunk your significant other / parent / child (come on, I’m not the only one thinking about that scenario)
- Make-your-own snack station for budding chefs
- A dance party. Because duh.
- Nerf soakers all around
- A Pie Face tournament where you might end up covered in whipped cream
- Play-doh activities inspired by camp, for after you’ve all ended up dunked in the giant BBQ sauce bottle.
Your registration proceeds go 100% to benefit SeriousFun. Hope to see you there!
SeriousFun Messtival comes to Prospect Park on Saturday, June 25 from 9am to 3pm.
