The second annual West Manchester Day was a blast. The weather was perfect for games and picnicking in Lafayette Park. Families with children of all ages enjoyed the huge array of field games. From giant Jenga and giant Memory, to cardboard sledding down the grassy hill, there was plenty to do between the organized field games.
The organized field games were put on by We Heart West volunteers. There was a fun competition of Limbo followed by a hilarious round of Simon Says. Then, attendees partnered up to compete in the egg spoon relay followed by the three legged race and a water balloon toss competition. There was also an appearance made by everyone’s favorite unicorn during the limbo. However, the biggest highlight of all was the tug of war competition. There were several very fierce tug of war battles for both kids and adults. Finally, the day ended with a round of giant Twister.
The goal of West Manchester Day is to provide fun and wholesome activities for families, promote connections between neighbors, and showcase the uniqueness of the West Side. We were delighted that so many families came to celebrate West Manchester Day this year. We look forward to next year and hope to see you there!
