Teddy Bears Picnic in Richmond

All teddy bears are invited to bring their best human friend, a lunch and a picnic blanket to Steveston Park, and join in bear-themed festivities at the Teddy Bears Picnic.

Bear-fun will include games, teddy bear medical checkups, paw reading fortune telling and face painting. Frontier College will provide continuous storybook readings and listeners can leave with a FREE book. It also would not be a picnic without FREE lemonade and cookies.

Adventurous bears can explore the Interurban Tram Building next to the park and climb aboard the 103-year-old Interurban Tramcar 1220. Just outside the tram building will be conductor hat crafts, both for bears and their owners.
