Announcements:


We hope this message finds you well. We regret to inform you that we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2024 Ice Skating Party due to the warm weather melting our ice rinks. 

We want to thank our local Salvation Army and Super One for donating to this event.  These donations will be used for future events.  

The next event will Be Smooch a Pooch on February 13th at 5 PM.  Make sure you head over to Buster Park, 1101 East River Road Brainerd, MN 56401 to get your picture taken with your pup! Free Photos Provided by Tadych Photography The first 12 dogs receive a doggie bandana donated by Pampered Pets.
