Event Description

Play in the Rain Day Means Free Family Fun
Over 1,000 people expected this year at the Arboretum

There is a great opportunity for those looking for something fun to do with their family on a rainy, or perhaps even sunny Saturday in November. They can visit Mount Pisgah Arboretum for our community's 3rd annual Play in the Rain Day on Saturday, November 20th, from 10 am to 3 pm.

Youth in Nature Partnership, comprised of governmental and non-profit organizations, will once again collaborate to bring youth into the outdoors. Play in the Rain Day is a FREE FAMILY EVENT for all ages. The day's activities will include tree-climbing, horses, nature crafts, hikes, hay rides, campfire cookery, a visit from Smokey Bear, native plants, fire by friction, archery and more! Parking and all activities, including campfire food, are FREE!

Visitors will discover how fun, easy, and rewarding it is to spend time outdoors in nature—in ALL kinds of weather. More than 1,000 people attended last year. Play in the Rain Day will happen rain or shine, so dress for the weather.
