Children gathered to play Bridgeport Bingo

Passing out the bingo cards

The squares were names of flowers, animals, park features, etc. -- prizes for every winner.

The next table was busy with face painting.

Bean-bag toss into a pack mule -- also with prizes

Tossing paused as previous winners examined their prizes.

Visitors picked out free animal casts at the Animals of the Forest booth.  Music listeners on hay bales in the background.

Music listeners.  Kneebone gas station, mountain man encampment, and Visitor Center in the background.

Ring toss onto pumpkin stems -- more prizes (It was difficult to make the rings stay on, just as in a carnival.)

Wagon rides continued all day.
