Down Dog at the Water Dog
July 28 & Aug. 25, 11:30 – 12:30 p.m.
A workout doesn’t sound so bad when it’s accompanied by a tasty craft beer! The Water Dog is partnering with Yoga Goodness Studio for these fun, refreshing yoga sessions. One brew of your choice is included with your $12 admission. Love beer but aren’t sure about yoga? This class is perfect for beginners and is offered monthly through the end of the year.

The Great Cardboard Boat Race
Aug. 11, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Put your design and engineering expertise to the test with this fun event for all ages at Miller Park Pool. The challenge is to paddle your vessel to the finish line—but don’t be intimidated by failure. There’s also the Titanic Award for the “Most Dramatic Sinking.” Cost is $10/boat. Register by August 9 at lynchburgparksandrec.org.
Love. Pets. Match. Tennis Tournament
