According to Liz Dippold, a recreation assistant at the park who has been involved with the event for the past four years, typically the event is attended by around 30 youngsters, many of whom live near the park. While this year's numbers were slightly lower, likely due to the weather, the participants were eager to take part in a variety of events that included a Frisbee throw, soccer kick, obstacle course and archery shoot.
