KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Kids and families can take part in an early Fourth of July event as Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs, Read City USA, and the Knox County Public Library (KCPL) hosts a trivia game night for kids.
The event will take place on June 29 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at New Harvest Park. The game is open to children up to 11-years-old and participation is free.
The trivia game will be split into two rounds. The first round will be for children up to seven years old and the second round will be for kids ages between 8 to 11.
The Knox County Public Library will also be at the park and will offer take-home crafts and a special holiday edition of its Story Trails outdoor reading experience. Families can register at this link.
Papa John's will be at the park to sell $1 slices of pizza and Knox Dough also will have special treats available for purchase.
The New Harvest Park has splash pads and a playground that families and kids can enjoy.
"We’re excited to try this out for the first time," said Mayor Jacobs. "The library has prepared a list of books to help kids prepare for the questions so they’ll have a better chance at taking home a prize. Exploring our history is an important part of becoming an engaged citizen we think this will be a fun way to do it."
For prizes, first-place winners in each round will receive a $50 Visa Gift Card and a bag of books. Second place winners will also receive a bag of books. Third place winners will take home KCPL and Read City USA swag.
