This Friday, July 14 through Sunday, July 16 is Owatonna's Weekend Out. There are a lot of things to do and a  complete list can be found at the Owatonna Parks and Recreation web site.

Saturday, July 15 is the weekly Farmers Market in Central Park in Owatonna. This Saturday will mark the first Family Fun Day from 8-12PM.

Here's some of the high lights. The first 200 children ages 2-12 will get $2 worth of Allina Bucks courtesy of Allina Health/Owatonna Hospital. The youngsters can then use the money to be fruit or vegetables at the market. The first 50 kids will get the chance to build a tool caddy with Habitat for Humanity of the Steele-Waseca area.  The Steele County United Way will have enrollment forms for the Imagination Library and the Preschool bus. You'll have a chance to check out the Meals in Motion van courtesy of the Steele County Food shelf. The Steele Country Master Gardeners and 4-H have plans for projects for the young folks as well. Owatonna Hospital will have a fun veggie toss game and Hy-Vee will do painting with vegetables.

So bring the kids out to the Central Park this Saturday for all kinds of fun things to do while learning about fruits and vegetables.
