A group of lo­cal non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tions is host­ing a day of free fun ac­tiv­i­ties for kids on Satur­day.

The sec­ond an­nual Great Park Es­cape runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Lhei­dli T’en­neh Memorial Park, and will fea­ture free hot­dogs, a bouncy cas­tle, crafts and other kid-friendly ac­tiv­i­ties.

The event started in 2017 as For­get the Fires, an event for fam­i­lies dis­placed by wild­fires in the re­gion.

Lo­cal or­ga­ni­za­tions ral­lied to put on the event in 48 hours, and have con­tin­ued the event in the fol­low­ing years.

The free event is a part­ner­ship be­tween the Prince Ge­orge Hospice So­ci­ety, Con­nec­tPG, The Ex­plo­ration Place, YMCA, Two Rivers Art Gallery and other groups.
