“Oceans of Fun”
at Arctic Springs Park!

Tuesday, August 16 @ 6:00
(rain date, August 17)

~Galesville Trout Club

& Friends of the Library

Reading is its own reward,
but we would like to celebrate
with everyone for all the reading
they did this summer!

Arctic Springs Park is also called Fireman’s Park.
It is next to Arctic Springs Supper Club on Cty. Rd. T.
Use the gravel entrance, because the paved
driveway only leads to the restaurant.

(If you’d like to check out books there will be a small selection at the park,
or you can go to the library before the finale!


Hot Dogs, Chips, Drink, Dessert

Foam Party

We are renting a foam machine! Yes the kids will get damp, so bring a towel. The foam solution will not harm kids. It is biodegradable, non-toxic and hypo-allergenic.

Water Rockets

Friends of the Galesville Public Library, Beth & Andy Sveen, will help you set off a water rocket!

Trout Hatchery

The Galesville Volunteer Trout Club will take you through the Trout Hatchery, and tell you all about it!

Dunk Tank (Dunk-a-Dad!)

Line up to throw a ball at the target, and maybe you will dunk a dad! Someone will be sitting on the bench inside, and when the target gets hit, the bench opens and dunks the person in the water! Dads (or Moms?) who are participating in SLPx2 and have logged at least one hour of reading may volunteer to sit in the dunk tank. Just let Wina know by August 12!

Minnow Races

Contestants will borrow a real live minnow to race down the gutters and see whose minnow makes it first across the finish line!

Fun Photo

Two people put their faces through the holes and get their Fun Photo taken! You’ll look like the famous friends, Narwhal & Jelly! (Thank you, Sue Byom, for painting this!) Bring your camera/phone.
