The Ocala Police Department and the Ocala Recreation and Parks Department are teaming up to host a fun event for the whole family this weekend.
The Police Department’s “Come Slide With Us 2022” Family Fun Day event will be held Saturday, April 30, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the ED Croskey Recreation Center (1510 NW 4th Street in Ocala).
The event will feature KDC and the Sunshine Sliders, and attendees will be able to slide to a variety of catchy tunes. A silent auction will take place during the event which will benefit KDC scholarships and community events.
Free hot dogs, fries and drinks will be served throughout the event, along with free ice cream courtesy of the Polar Patrol OPD. There will also be gift card giveaways, video game giveaways (various titles for Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 4, and Playstation 3), and more.
OPD officers will also challenge community participants to take to the basketball court for a three-point shooting contest.
There is no cost to attend the event and it is open to the public.
