A group of local non-profit organizations is hosting a day of free fun activities for kids on Saturday.
The second annual Great Park Escape runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Lheidli T'enneh Memorial Park, and will feature free hotdogs, a bouncy castle, crafts and other kid-friendly activities.
The event started in 2017 as Forget the Fires, an event for families displaced by wildfires in the region. Local organizations rallied to put on the event in 48 hours, and have continued the event in the following years.
The free event is a partnership between the Prince George Hospice Society, ConnectPG, The Exploration Place, YMCA, Two Rivers Art Gallery and other groups.
