Lewis and Clark State Park announces 50th anniversary events

EPPING – Lewis and Clark State Park invites the public to celebrate its 50th anniversary with a fun-filled day of activities on Saturday, June 8.

The day will kick-off with a dog jog at the dog park, featuring prizes for the best-dressed dog, waggiest dog and more. At 10 a.m. children are invited to delve into the life of an archaeologist with a dinosaur dig in the sand at the swim area.

Visitors can visit food vendors throughout the day, and park staff will be serving hotdogs at noon at Elk Point Shelter near the Jump-‘n-Fun inflatables. Other attractions include lawn games, such as horseshoes, Connect 4 and a bean bag toss.

Musical entertainment begins at 3 p.m. with the MoonCats, followed by Josie and the Whalers.

Visitors can further enhance their experience at the park with a hike along the Coteau trail with its new boardwalk for an up-close look at wetland animals, or make use of on-site rental equipment, including kayaks, canoes and paddleboards.
