Entertainment acts scheduled to perform at the events are: comedy magician and ventriloquist Todd Anderson on July 15, comedian juggler and ventriloquists Mike Hemmelgarn on July 29 and Madcap Puppets troupe from Cincinnati on July 22.
National Trail has several other free summer events scheduled. Earlier in June NTPRD and the OSU Extension started the Health Nut Mini Camps, held every Friday until July 15. The Community Health Foundation provided a $3,000 grant to make the event free for participants.
This summer is also the first full season for the splash pad at the park, a free water attraction. It's open from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. each day and can be activated with the button that says "Push me" on the sidewalk near the sprayground. The $350,000 water playground near the Speedway Children's Park was built last summer by the Friends of Snyder Park.
