Event Description

In honor of Kids to Parks day, Wickliffe Mounds holds a Chunkey Tournament on May 20 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Chunkey is a Native American game played with spears and special rounded stones. Organizations, clubs, churches, scouts, families, and homeschool groups are invited to sign up children's teams, and there will also be a park team. The day begins with a Chunkey demonstration by staff, and each round lasts about 30 minutes. Kids are admitted free, and other activities include an Archaeology Quest, games set up around the park, museum tours, and nature trail walks. Kids must be accompanied by an adult.
