Ocala Police Department hosting Family Fun Day at E.D. Croskey Recreation Center

The Ocala Police Department and Ocala Recreation and Parks Department are teaming up to host a fun event for the whole family this weekend.

The police department’s “Come Slide With Us 2022” Family Fun Day event is being held on Saturday, April 30, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the E.D. Croskey Recreation Center (1510 NW 4th Street in Ocala).

The event will feature KDC and the Sunshine Sliders, and attendees will be able to slide to a variety of catchy tunes. A silent auction will be held during the event which will benefit KDC’s scholarships and community events.
