Bring the whole family for a great day of games on the green — corn hole, horseshoes, broomstick tug-of-war, hula hoops races, and more!


The Osawatomie Public Library will be on hand helping with a great set of little-kid-friendly crafts, including face painting, corn husk dolls, pool noodle rockets and airplanes, and more! They’ll also have their mobile book bike parked nearby to checkout books and other materials.


It wouldn’t be a birthday party without snacks! Enjoy complimentary refreshments while you’re at the park and give a cupcake toast to Old Osawatomie Brown.
