RCS and the City of New Bern Parks & Recreation present


This is our 2nd annual event and we have BIG plans! We are looking forward to a fun day the whole family will enjoy! Not only that, we want to raise awareness about hunger and homelessness in New Bern. Proceeds from this day will help fund the Family Room Project, which will add 5 family rooms to the Homeless Shelter.

Did you know 34% of children in Craven County are food insecure? Did you also know that our Homeless Shelter remains at capacity over 300 days per year? We have several families who have faced difficulties and have been forced to leave their homes. They do not have family support and are finding refuge in our Shelter. We currently have only ONE family room and are in desperate need of expansion. This day of family fun will help make this need a reality.

Please make plans to attend! There will be an ice skating rink, a FORTY foot water slide, bounce house and other water activities, food trucks, snow cones and live music! A perfect day for the end of summer and ALL proceeds benefit a much needed addition to our shelter.
