Culture Connect Featured Event
Portland, CT – June 16, 2012. Summers here and the living’s adventurous! Celebrate the start of the summer at Brownstone Exploration & Discovery Park. While you’re at it bring Dad for Father’s Day and give him a day to remember.
“We want everyone to come out and kick off summer” says Sean Hayes, General Manager of Brownstone. “Every year we’ve grown and this year is no exception. We’ve doubled our ziplines to 10 including our new triple racing lines, a new beach area with volleyball, 2 new additional overhead wakeboard cables, a 70’ cargo net climb, expanded picnic areas, Guts & Glory obstacle course, new walking trails that lead to all activities within the park and our new cliff top picnic area with panoramic views of the park. This year we are celebrating Father’s Day for the entire weekend on June 16 & 17 with a special Father’s Day Barbecue for everyone at the park.”
Everyone purchasing a pass on the weekend of June 16 & 17th receives a golf ball to chip off of the 80 foot cliff onto a floating dock. Free golf swag will be awarded to all who get a hole in one. Others landing the ball on the dock will be entered into a raffle for additional golf prizes. Extra golf balls may be purchased with the money raised going to One On One Mentoring Groups in Connecticut.
The Father’s Day Barbecue features a choice of chicken or pork ribs with a selection of two sides, a dessert and drink is included for $16.95 per person. The standard menu is also available.
The annual Mentoring in Motion event happens on Saturday, but the park is open to all.
A DJ will be at the park all weekend to keep the festivities going.
