Activities include wildlife displays by the Lakeshore Sportsmen, a petting zoo, a fire safety demonstration from the Dalton Township Fire Department, and their spray house and bounce house.

There will be a raffle for 18 annual county parks passes, which would allow the winners year-round access to all county parks. Those raffles will be held at both parks 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 and 1:30 p.m., and they are free to enter.

Visitors will also have the chance to meet State Senator Geoff Hansen and Representatives Marcia Hovey-Wright and Collene Lamonte.

The events will be held on May 4 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. and they are free of charge.
