Steveston Park to host Teddy Bears Picnic this Saturday

Teddy bears and their young owners are warmly invited to attend a free Teddy Bears Picnic this Saturday in Steveston Park and at the Steveston Interurban Tram Building.

Events include a parade, story time, bear medical checkups, bear fortune telling and face painting for people. There will also be games for children and teddy bears alike, and cookies and lemonade for everyone to enjoy.

At the Interurban Tram Building, children can let their creativity run free when making a conductor’s hat, both in child and bear sizes, before having their photo taken with their best bear friend in front of Tram #1220.

The event is weather dependent (teddy bears don’t like to get wet if they can help it) and takes place from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
