An estimated 1200+ showed up for the 2nd Annual World Wide Day of Play at Community Maritime Park.  We couldn't ask for a mor PERFECT day!  Kids played in the bounce house, ran the obstacle course, practiced fishing, lacrosse and tennis.  The biggest hit was the incredible Zorb Ball, brought compliments of the Gulf Breeze Funplex.  Kids went inside an inflatable "gerbil ball" and rolled around.  One child said "It looks easy but it is not...It was alot of fun".  Families enjoyed cool spinach and fruit smoothies from the UHC Activate 4 Kids Blender Bike adn made their own kites comliments of Gulf Coast Kite Flyers.  There were activities for kids of all ages!
