Out Outside: Gnomes Who Roam — our annual open-house-style, free family event at Lebanon Hills Regional Park returns on Black Friday.
Celebrate Black Friday as Opt Outside day with the whole family.
This year, Lebanon Hills is the latest vacation spot for Jerome and his merry band of gnomes. Stop in anytime between 10 a.m.–4 p.m. for ongoing outside (and a few inside) activities throughout the day:
- Go on a gnome safari (find gnomes homes hidden along a trail in the park). Complete the safari and receive a prize. Trail distance is a half-mile and is stroller friendly. All ages, (especially fun for ages 0-6).
- Geocache for specially hidden NOMEnclature treasures for a prize. All ages, and especially fun for ages 5 and older.
- Bring Jerome home. Solve clever riddles to find Jerome the gnome himself, hidden somewhere in Lebanon Hills Regional Park. All ages, and especially for ages 10 and older. Riddles posted on Dakota County Parks - forever wild's Facebook page at noon on Nov. 21, 22 and Nov. 23.
The Lebanon Hills Visitor Center will be open with a crackling fire and cozy chairs. There will be gnome-themed puzzles and games, a gnome book nook, coloring corner, and photo booth like no other. The wearing of gnome hats is especially encouraged.
