Announcement for Park Day!

Hewwwow Blogville!  It is I, Finnackles, your Director of Parks and Recreation here with a MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT.


With Mayoress Madi’s permission, I have declared April 26th Blogville’s Park Day!  That means between now and April 26th (you have three weeks!) you need to take your peep to a park and get photographic evidence you were there.  Then, on that day, write a post about your park visit, and leave me a comment here so we know you went!  We will have a random drawing for some prizes with all those who enter.  And, I have to tell you, we have been getting some great prizes for this.

Now, I just said “we.”  You didn’t think I could do this event all by myself, did you?  No way!  I am happy to report that our Blogville Outdoor/Woodsman Guide, Gizmo, is co-hosting this event with me!  And tomorrow, you can head on over to his blog for some tips on how to find parks in your neck of the woods.

Need some encouragement?  I shall remind you between now and then.  With cute pictures of moi at parks.


Go enjoy!

And – – don’t forget the badge!!! (Thank you Gizmo’s Momma)

    How fun! We don’t have many parks near us here in Florida that are dog friendly (or many parks at all) but Mommy said that there is a suedo-park right here where we live so we’re gonna try and give that a go!

    This is gonna be an adventure and we’re looking forward to it.

    We will have to see if we can find a dog friendly park around here. Mommy said we can’t go back to Gulf Island National Park right now because of the gnats. Then we will have to get her to take the camera and use it. But we will try to participate, we love going places. ~Fenris & Tuiren

    This sounds like lots of fun. We have so many parks around us we will have to decide which one to do.

    Hey there Finn ~ nice to meet you (and Charley!). Madi posted your BIG news abouts the Park Day…very cool! None of our parks here allow doggies ( I know…the NERVE!!), butts I have an ‘in’ at one of the parks (the park peeps allow ‘some of us’ in!), so hopefully I can gets some pics! If not, I can be a rebel and gets pics from the fringes. Great Idea Finn!

    What a great idea! Park day! Mom & I spend LOTS of time hiking in our local parks, so this should be easy for us. Well, the park part will be easy, mom finding time for the blog post won’t be as easy, but I’ll try to make sure she does!

    your pal,
