Get Out & Play Day Canceled for 2020

Sadly, Eureka Community Services has made the difficult decision to cancel Get Out & Play Day 2020 due to the COVID-19 Corona Virus Pandemic.

The current Shelter In Place order does not allow large gatherings and information that the City has been receiving does not indicate that these events will be allowed in the next next months.

We’ll be posting some of our favorite Get Out & Play Day memories on social media and will share some activities that you can do for your own Get Out & Play Day.  We’d love to see pictures!  Stay tuned for more info.  We look forward to getting the community together again when it is safe to do so.
