Kids enjoyed games, crafts and dancing at the annual Teddy Bear Picnic at Bay Court Park last Friday.
They brought an array of stuffed animals, from dolphins to dogs to rabbits and, of course, teddy bears.
Bella Bear took pictures with the kids, led everyone in a Teddy Bear Parade around the courtyard and held a dance party afterwards. After playing a quick game outside, the kids went back into the Lakeview room for crafts and a grilled lunch.
The event was hosted by Independence Township Parks, Recreation and Seniors and sponsored by The Clarkston News and Genisys Credit Union.
