at the Rayleigh Slo-Pitch Park located on Palmer-Forsythe Rd just off the Yellowhead Hwy

There will be live music, free admission, a BBQ, bouncy castle, face painting, and a Wildlife Park display, along with free ice cream provided by Cold Stone Creamery. Come out and enjoy the fun with the whole family!
