CREATIVITY FOCUSED FAMILY Night at the Virtues Trail in Faribault on Wednesday evening
with face painting,
hands-on art with markers,
hands-on art with chalk, storytelling and much more to engage kids.
As I meandered along the trail lined with mirrored signs promoting virtues like kindness, tolerance and creativity, I thought how valuable this event. It not only reinforces positive traits, but it shows the kids of this community that they are valued. People care. They volunteered for this Family Night.
Clearly, kids loved it. Their faces, their hands, their involvement showed their enthusiasm.
I, too, enjoyed myself, stopping occasionally to chat with friends, to eat a scoop of ice cream, to delight in a summer evening as beautiful as they come in Minnesota.
I love how the people of Faribault are really stepping up to shine positivity in creative ways.
A final summer Family Night at the Virtues Trail is set for 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, August 28, along the trail in Heritage Bluff Park, next to the train tracks and across from The Depot Bar & Grill.
