Face painting, food trucks and more at Summer Solstice Celebration

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - It may not always feel like it, but it's time to celebrate summer in Northeast Wisconsin.

Green Bay is hosting its annual Summer Solstice Celebration Thursday, June 20. It's 5-9 p.m. at Whitney Park.

The party has live music by The Presidents, food trucks, local beer, and games for the family.

Mischief & Magic Entertainment will provide free face painting. That's 5-7 p.m. Watch the video for a demonstration.

"Thanks to the sponsorship from Capital Credit Union, we're able to have a lot of free kids activities. So as you can see we're going to have some face painting. They'll be here from 5 to 7 p.m. There will also be balloon twisting," says Kathryn Kroll, Downtown Green Bay Marketing Manager. "Because of that sponsorship we're able to offer those activities free for families, so it's a really great benefit to all of the neighborhood kids that can come out and get their face painted and get a balloon animal. Then we'll have bag toss and tattoos and bubbles."

Organizers encourage visitors to bring lawn chairs and blankets.
