The City of Lake Charles’ Partners in Parks Initiative and Phillips 66 are teaming up to host a Family Fun Day in the Park with STEM activities on Saturday, June 10, from 8:30 -10:30 a.m. This free event will take place at Drew Park, 416 Dr. Michael DeBakey Dr. See pre-registration info below to avoid long lines! 

Families are invited to join in on the summer morning fun with a host of activities, including a fun jump, kiddie train, snacks and STEM activities. Children will learn how to make elephant toothpaste, glitter slime, lava lamps, fire snakes, volcanos, dry ice bubbles and play with Orbeez. 

The Children’s Museum will be onsite with activities such as a fossil dig and erector sets to allow participants to build their own refinery. Children can also board a Phillips 66 fire truck. Snacks such as cotton candy, popcorn and snow cones will be enjoyed and Lake Charles Coca-Cola is providing beverages. 

“When we launched Partners in Parks in 2018 our goal was to not only create new partnerships that would allow us to make transformative changes to the infrastructure of our City parks without additional financial burden to our citizens, but also to enhance and re-energize park programming through innovative community partnerships,” said Lake Charles Mayor Nic Hunter. “We are thrilled to once again collaborate with Phillips 66 and the Children’s Museum on this free, overwhelmingly successful event that promises educational fun for the entire family.”

“STEM education is important for our future workforce. Phillips 66 has a passion to provide children opportunities to explore STEM concepts and inspire them to pursue a STEM-related career. This STEM Family Fun Day is a great way for hands-on engagement in chemistry, engineering, and science with our Phillips 66 volunteers. Phillips 66 is proud of our rich partnership with the City of Lake Charles and the Children’s Museum who have helped make this happen,” said Megan Hartman, public relations director of Phillips 66 Lake Charles Manufacturing Complex. 

The free event is open to the public. For more information, call 337-491-1280. Pre-registration is not required, but can be completed by clicking here and emailing the completed for to
