Live from the Kentwood Maranda Park Party

KENTWOOD, Mich. (WOTV) - Over 9,000 kids and families joined Maranda at the 4th Park Party of the summer.  The fun kicked off today in Kentwood and it was sunshine and smiles all day long!  The warm July day and cool breeze were a perfect combination for families enjoying all the free fun Maranda and her generous partners brought to the community.

“Today we had record breaking crowds at our East Kentwood Park Party.  9,000 kids and families joined us for free haircuts, free backpacks, free hotdogs and loads of free games.  It was a very special day and a huge thank you to the Kentwood community for the ongoing support,” said Maranda.

The stage rocked all afternoon with great music and a ton of prizes. Maranda gave away passes to Michigan’s Adventure, Craig’s Cruisers, Cedar Point and Catch Air so kids could continue having fun all summer long.

Kids under the age of 18 got to enjoy a free cookout complete with all-beef hot dogs, fruit and cold milk.  After enjoying a picnic lunch kids ran from attraction to attraction including giant inflatables like the obstacle course, the Fifth Third Super Slide, bounce houses and so much more!  The first 1,000 kids to arrive also received a free backpack full of school supplies from Kingdom Life Ministries.  There is still one more chance to experience a Maranda Park Party this summer!  See you there!
