If you go down to the Curran Apple Orchard Park on Sunday July 22, 1-4 p.m., you’re in for a big surprise! “For every bear that ever there was, will gather there for certain because, that is the day the teddy bears’ have their picnic.” They are part of the fifth annual Teddy Bears’ Picnic, a free, fun, family community event in University Place. The event is now produced by Dance Theatre Northwest with lots of local area sponsors and community volunteers.
Bring a picnic lunch, a blanket, and your favorite teddy bear (or another favorite animal) to the orchard. Pay tribute to our military families, listen to music by the Harrison Street Band, watch the teddy bears dance, have your face painted and get a free balloon. Make sure your teddy bear visits the teddy bear health and dental clinics, listens to teddy bear stories and plays teddy bear games, does yoga, and while you’re there, check out the teddy bear adoption booth for your free souvenir bear. Later in the day you can join the Parade of Bears as they wind their way around and through the orchard.
Free red and white checked tablecloths and bottled water are provided at check in. You won’t want to miss this family friendly, free event. It is rated: bear-y fun and approved for all ages.
Curran orchard is located at 3920 Grandview Dr. in University Place. In inclement weather, the event will be moved to the cafeteria at Curtis High School at 8425 40th St. W.
