City of Tallahassee Offers Recreational Challenge - To kick off July's National Parks and Recreation Month celebration, the City of Tallahassee's Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Affairs (PRNA) Department is hosting a fun and exciting recreational challenge. The PRNA Five in July competition sets out with the goal of opening citizens up to the great offerings of Tallahassee's many city parks.
Participants choose at least five exciting activities from a list of 10 PRNA events and programs. After selection, participants visit each park, participate in the designated activity or event, and then receive a punch on their individual challenge card. Those interested in participating in the Five in July challenge should pick up a special challenge card at the annual Celebrate America event on July 4 at Tom Brown Park. After the Fourth of July, challenge cards can be picked up at the following locations: PRNA Administrative offices, Forest Meadows Tennis Complex and the Sue McCollum Community Center.
Once five card punches have been reached, participants will drop signed challenge cards off at any of the ten challenge events. With full completion of the challenge, each contestant will receive a neat prize and be entered in a grand prize drawing. On Monday, August 8, the grand prize winner will be drawn from all of the cards turned into PRNA that have the five punches and will be announced on the PRNA Facebook and Twitter pages.
Some of the activities included in the Five in July challenge include the Fourth of July Celebrate America event, the City's Sizzlin' Summer Concert Series at Kleman Plaza, the Animal Service Center Bloodmobile event on July 9, and other recreational activities available through Tallahassee's many beautiful city parks.
