National Get Outdoors Day Coming to Downtown Smithville

Did you know children in the United States average 45 hours a week exposed to electronic media, and only 30 minutes a week to time outdoors?

National Get Outdoors Day is an annual event across the country working to introduce our youth to recreational activities and the wonders of our Nation's landscapes. Experiencing our Nation's natural splendor contributes to healthier lives for our citizens and a deeper appreciation for the great outdoors.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Healthier Beginnings have teamed up to bring the first National Get Outdoors Day to DeKalb County. Join them and other community members at the Smithville Public Square for this free event on Saturday, June 14 from 1:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. There will be games, live music, food, and exhibits for all ages.

Activities include:

Wildlife Displays
Relay Races
Gardening Demos
Story Time
Campsite Fun
Hula Hooping Class

Remember to bring your lawn chair/blankets to listen to LIVE music featuring: Brandon Maddox-Nashville Recording Artist & Lucas Oil Monster Truck's Artist of 2014 and local talent: The Martins and Tom Duggin.

The Smithville Golf Club and Swimming Pool will be priced at discounted rates from 2:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. on June 14.
