Hops and Hounds

The Humane Society Boone County will be there to bring awareness to their cause and showcase some adoptables waiting for forever homes.

This event is free to attend, and adult beverages will be available for purchase.

Superheroes and Princesses in the Park

Head to Anson Acres Park (4671 Anson Blvd) on Saturday, September 24 for a superhero training camp and princess singalong, presented by Chick-fil-A.

At Superheroes in the Park from 10 a.m.-12 p.m., you will learn how to become a real-life superhero. You will be put through a physical test (running, jumping jacks, dodging), and get to create your own hero ID! You will also get to meet some of your favorite heroes.

From 1-3 p.m., experience Princesses in the Park which includes a sing-along performance and meet and greet with several iconic princesses.

Don’t forget to bring your blankets, chairs, and wear your favorite costume!

Guests are welcome to bring snacks for a picnic-style meal during the event or in between if you attend both events. Chick-fil-A (until 1 p.m.) and Nothing Bundt Cakes will have food available for purchase.

Each session is $10 per person, or $15 per person if you choose to do both. Every attendee (children and adults) needs a ticket (available here).
