All are invited to take part in family-friendly activities all summer long on the downtown square in Pella.

Sarah Treft with the Pella Area Community and Economic Alliance says Thursdays in Pella are returning this week and every Thursday in June and July. She says there are many new and returning themes at each event, including a night for science projects and another featuring Christmas in July.

This week’s activities are being organized by Families First of Pella and features programs for kids, including a magician, crafts and a bicycle rodeo.

Tune into Let’s Talk Pella to hear more about this year’s Thursdays in Pella activities, and listen every Thursday this summer to hear reports from the Lil’ Big Red Radio.
