The spot we’ve picked for our first ever HEAL Family Night — the Rice Pavilion at Liberty Park in Salt Lake City — is right next to a playground and a big open grassy area. We’ll bring some yard games and are planning on having a face painter and balloon twister as well.
We’ll provide some food — including hot dogs (meat and vegetarian) and beverages for kids — plus some snacks for adults. We’ll have charcoal, so if you want to bring your own meat or veggie patty to cook on the big grills there, go right ahead.
