A great crowd has turned up for Family Day Unplugged at the Badlands Community Facility.

The field house is filled with inflatable bouncy houses and plenty of activites for kids and families to engage in.

"We have a really beautiful turnout and we've got lots of inflatables, hula hooping, crafts, board games and all kinds of stuff going down at the BCF," said FCSS Coordinator, April Harrison.

The event runs until 4:00p.m.

"I think it's either a provincial or even national campaign to try and encourage families to disconnect from technology for the day and connect with each other and the community," explained Harrison. "This year we decided to make it a competition between us, Lamont County and Coronation."

The Drumheller Memorial Arena is offering free public skating and the Aquaplex has a toonie swim taking place today. In addition, the Royal Tyrell Museum has free admission for the day and special programs available.

"I was reading an article the other day about taking time to spend with your children and the older relatives in your family," said Harrison. "One of the really cool ways I saw to unplug was to sit and go through your family tree and talk about the different people in it. I thought that was a really nice idea for a multi-generational activity for the day."

You can pick up a survey at Family Day Unplugged or answer it on the Drumheller FCSS Facebook page.
