The Kokomo Parks & Recreation Department is celebrating Park and Recreation Month, an initiative of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), and all the ways parks and recreation has the power to transform our daily lives.
Residents can help celebrate again this year by taking part in the “Play on Kokomo” photo contest. Take a photo at your favorite City of Kokomo Park, such as Highland Park, Kokomo Beach, Foster Park or any of the local trails, showing how you “get your play on.” Participants are asked to post photos to social media with the hash tag #PlayOnKokomo.
The top 15 photos will be selected by the Kokomo Parks Department. The Kokomo Parks Board will then select three winners. The first place winner will two season passes for the 2020 season along with 35 day passes. Second place winner will get two season passes for the 2020 season at Kokomo Beach while the third place winner will receive one season pass to Kokomo Beach for 2020.
“This contest is getting bigger each year,” said KPRD superintendent Torrey Roe. “Nearly 100 photos were submitted by residents last year that showed off our parks and trails, along with Kokomo Beach.”
The contest begins Monday, July 1 and photos must be posted to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with proper hash tag -- #PlayOnKokomo -- by Thursday, August 1. Submitted photos MUST have the hashtag in order to be considered,
