Midlothian’s Annual Parktopia to be held this Friday, July 23, from 5 to 9 p.m. at Community Park, 3601 South 14th St., promises games galore for the entire family.

Whether your crew wants a friendly game of football or looks forward to playground games like four square or hopscotch, there is something for everyone.

The Midlothian Parks & Recreation Department began Parktopia three years ago as a way to celebrate National Parks & Recreation Month. And what better way to do that than to hold an event that combines traditional park activities with less traditional activities, like chess and Giant Jenga.

On top of that, In-n-Out Burger will be providing free burger box dinners as long as supplies last. Thanks also to Marco’s Pizza and Methodist Midlothian Medical Center, for supporting this family fun the event is free and open to the public.
