August 9th marks Smkey Bear’s marks Smokey Bear’s 69th birthday.  To celebrate, the Friends of Wyalusing State Park will sponsor a special event in Smokey’s honor on Saturday August 10, 2013, at 6:00 PM at Wyalusing State Park’s Peterson Shelter.
Smokey Bear’s Birthday Party will start with a parade through the Wisconsin Ridge Campground (overlooking the Wisconsin River), led by Smokey Bear himself.  All area children and campers are invited to participate in the parade, either on foot or on bicycle. 
The true story of Smokey Bear will be told. Children can play “Pin the Hat on Smokey”.  Refreshments will be provided, including a Smokey Bear Birthday Cake, complete with 69 candles, donated by Ma’s Bakery of Bloomington. 
Bruce Klang, president of the Friends of Wyalusing State Park, encourages local residents to pack a picnic supper and spend an evening at one of Wisconsin’s most scenic state parks.  “The festivities should conclude just in time to watch the sunset from the beautiful bluffs high above the Mississippi River”, added Randy Paske, vice president of the organization.

A state park admission sticker is required on all vehicles.  For more information, please call Wyalusing State Park Office at 608-996-2261 or visit our website at www.wyalusing.org.
