Ping Pong Ball Drop Rules:

Please keep in mind: This event is for the children!

Adults are only allowed on the field during the first drop (age 0-4).

No adults are allowed on the field during the second (age 5-8) and third (age 9-12) drops.

Adults caught collecting ping pong balls may be asked to leave the park. Thank you for your cooperation!

Each child is allowed to collect 3 ping pong balls.  The ping pong balls are color coded and each color is a different prize.

Once you have collected 3 ping pong balls, enter the pavilion from the back side and find the colored balloon that matches your ball.  If you have more than one color, you must get in a different line for each color.

Once you have traded in all three of your balls, please exit the pavilion to make room for the rest of the children.
