Student Bar Association Helps Promote Day at the Park for Kids
July 29, 2014 - Cooley Law School teamed up with Lansing’s Parks and Recreation Department for Cooley’s Day at the Park event on July 24. The Day at the Park event, which was held at Burchfield Park, allowed students from Cooley’s Student Bar Association and the Lansing Lugnuts’ mascot, Big Lug, to interact with kids taking part in the Lansing Parks and Recreation’s summer programs.
This year Cooley’s Day at the Park involved a themed flash mob to “Thriller,” face painting, inflatable obstacle courses, and a chance to meet Big Lug and Cooley students.
Cooley’s Day at the Park is an annual event that precedes the Cooley for Kids Day event, which is scheduled for July 30, at noon. Each year, the Cooley for Kids Day includes a kid’s parade around the ball park with colorful student-made banners, lunch on the lawn, and the opportunity to see the Lansing Lugnuts baseball team in action.
