Features this year include:

  • Free face painting

  • Arts and crafts
  • Food and non-alcoholic beverages available for purchase

Thanks to generous sponsorships from Arizona Public Service (APS) and the Caballeros de Yuma, the event will have free jumping houses for kids and 100 door prizes.

 "Without the support from our local businesses, we wouldn't be able to host these community events that create a safe, family-friendly environment that allows us to strive for our mission at Parks and Recreation," said Marketing Specialist Carrie Ring. "We aim to enrich the lives through quality programs, experiences and facilities that preserve the past, provide for the present, plan for the future and promote the spirit of fun," Ring added, elaborating on the Parks and Recreation Department's goal.

 The City thanks the following additional sponsors who made this family-friendly event possible: Johnny Yuma's Bicycles, A & R Jumpers LLC, Vintage Selfie Photo Booth, WestAir, Funny Faces,, El Dorado Broadcasters,, Monster Media, Blackhawk Broadcasting.
