Mylan Park hosts ‘Freedom Day’ Saturday

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Mylan Park will host a “Freedom Day” event Saturday.

The patriotic celebration will include a petting zoo, high tunnel tours and food trucks.

“We can get families out and have a lot of fun,” said Heather McIntyre, Mylan Park’s assistant director of marketing and outreach.

“We want to show off Mylan Park. We want everyone to come out and take advantage of all the fun things we have. We’re going to showcase everything.”

All park facilities will be open with some admission specials and a free showing of “Captain America: Civil War.” There will also be field games, potato sack races and a soccer shootout.

“Inside, we’re going to be doing a home run derby with Pro-Performance, pickleball and a basketball shootout,” McIntyre said. “You can also slip over to the event complex for all kinds of fun and games.”

The first 750 guests will have an opportunity to win one of several Mylan Park prizes, including monthly membership packages and membership to the Mylan Park Aquatic Center.

The event will go from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
