Marion P*A*R*K*S Bingo

Open to anyone who wants to participate. The Marion Parks and Recreation Department has put together a comprehensive activities list and turned it into the ultimate BINGO (or P-A-R-K-S) card. Complete at least one bingo (max 5 bingo's per card/family) and submit it to have your name entered into a drawing for some cool prizes. Be sure to post your "STAR" items in your bingo to this event page OR feel free to share any photos/videos of any of the completed activities. Let's spread some joy and see those photos/videos! 

Email completed forms to Tony or mail them to Thomas Park (343 Marion Blvd, Marion, IA 52302, Attn: Tony Ireland). Random drawings will take place each Monday and Friday and winners will be announced (max 1 prize per drawing, per family).
