GAME ON! Play Streets starts up in Savannah
Just wanted to do a quick review on the new healthy initiative Play Streets! If you didn’t get a chance to go this last Sunday – go in May, September, and October! My family and I had a blast!
Everyone, big and small, should check this out if you haven’t already. Not only is it a great chance for your kids to get outside and play, but also a great excuse for the adults to check out the Forsyth Farmers Market (we bought some fantastic cheese, and some yummy popsicles for the kids).
As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, people who visited Play Streets Sunday and participated in hopscotch, broke the record for most people hop scotching simultaneously – record was set at 358 and there were 400! Did I participate? Of course, along with my 11 year old and a few of our friends. We all had a blast.
Heard of AWOL (All Walks of Life)? They had a stage set up too. The lyrical performances from the youth around Savannah were amazing. There is so much young talent in this little city. If you’ve never heard or seen them perform, I completely recommend it.
Seemed like the biggest eye catchers for the younger groups – would be DeSotorow Gallery’s booth – building with recycled boxed, and drawing with sidewalk chalk. I had a really hard time pulling my 4 year old away from this booth – he LOVES sidewalk chalk. COPE (Childhood Obesity Prevention + Education) had to be my kids’ favorite – hoola-hoops! Not only did I see the kids out there enjoying themselves, but the parents too – WAY TO GO PARENTS on setting an example!
Ok well that is a just a slice of the fun and excitement that was had on my Sunday afternoon on Lincoln street in Savannah. I hope you check it out next month. Your kids will have a blast (and sleep well too). Next month’s Play Street event will be called “Bicycle Block Party Play Street”. I expect a great time!
