Games, singing, firefighting equipment, birthday cake and of course, Smokey Bear! The symbol of wildland fire prevention turns 70 this year, and the Cradle of Forestry will host this special bear’s birthday party. Smokey will help cut his birthday cake and meet and greet his friends during the celebration. Party favor bags for children include a little book “The True Story of Smokey Bear,” the Smokey Bear song, and Smokey memorabilia. Families are welcome to pack a picnic. Activities during Smokey Bear’s Birthday Party are held in front of the Forest Discovery Center until 1:00, indoors if it is raining. The fee for this event is $6.00 for ages 16 and older; $3.00 for youth 15 and under, Federal Recreation Pass holders, and Golden Age Passport holders. Children under four years old are admitted free.
