CHESAPEAKE, Va. – Families will be able to enjoy all park activities at Northwest River Park for free from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, November 5.

This event was originally scheduled for September 24 but was postponed due to excessively wet ground conditions.

Activities include free canoe rentals, paddle boat rentals, bicycle rentals, miniature golf, wagon rides, fishing (license required) and access to over 7-miles of hiking trails, picnic areas, playgrounds and other amenities.

There will also be special activities including pony rides, children’s crafts, face painting, a photo booth and lawn games.

After the festivities families can bring their own blankets or lawn chairs and watch Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, starting at 6 p.m.
