The Valparaiso Department of Parks and Recreation put on a great event on Sunday, giving the Valparaiso community a chance to enjoy one of the last days of great weather in the Old Fairgrounds Park.

Sports Sunday in the Park, as it was called, gave the Valparaiso Youth a chance to get out and move around and meet some of the Valparaiso Athletic Department’s finest products, as many of the current basketball and football players were joined by NCAA players Robbie Hummel and Scott Martin, who were there to sign autographs.

ValpoLife was there to cover the event, and we have taken plenty of photos and videos of the day’s activities! You can click here to view the photo gallery, and you can click here to view the video.

A bungy-ball set up entertained the kids all day.

A face painting center made the whole day more colorful.

A fast pitch machine measured the pitch speed of Valpo's best arms.
