As summer winds down and children fall into routines of a new school year, time becomes more fleeting for family fun and adventure. But this doesn’t mean you can’t find some weekend time to visit wild things, hang out and pet some reptiles or try your hand at “Cocked Hat Bowling,” a game played during the Gold Rush Era. All you have to do is gather up the family, put on your walking shoes and plan to spend the day at the 25th annual Family Day Celebration at Calaveras Big Trees State Park.

You will see live animals, take guided walks through some very big trees, enjoy horse-drawn carriage rides, watch as butterflies are released into the wild, have your face painted and visit a Miwok Indian display. You will also have a chance to interact with Smokey the Bear, meet the park ranger, listen to a story teller and examine a fire engine, all with a scenic background of the Stanislaus National Forest and sounds of local musicians.
