Sunfest shines on MetroParks

July 24, 2014
The Town Crier

Music, games and giant sand sculptures will be part of Sunfest, which returns to Mill Creek MetroParks on Sunday.

Festivities start at 8 a.m. with a closest-to-the-pin competition at the Par 3 Golf Course. Participants will have nine chances to win a prize with their $5 entry fee.

For a $2 fee, streamers, beads and other decorative items will be provided for children to decorate their bicycles starting at 9 a.m. until the bike parade, starting at 11 a.m. in the Kurinka Children's Play Area. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., children will be able to do a take-home craft and add to a family fun mural for a $2 fee.

Also planned for 11 a.m. is a mile-long hike on the area trail, and a free zumba class starts at noon. A robotics display by North East Ohio FIRST Robotics Alliance can be seen from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The main event is the Sand Sculpture Contest from 1 to 4 p.m. Teams can purchase a one-ton pile of sand to transform into a "sand-sational" work of art. The cost per ton of sand is $8 for Mahoning County residents and $10 for non-residents, and reservations can be made by calling 330-740-7107. Sculptors need to bring their own buckets and shovels.

Members of the Mahoning Valley Olde Car Club will display their vehicles from 4 to 7 p.m., and the festivities will conclude with live entertainment by the Teddy Pantelas Trio at 5 p.m. and Rudy and the Professionals at 6:45 p.m.

All activities take place around Wick Recreation Area, 1861 McCollum Road, Youngstown.
