There are two new rides at Playland this year that you can check out on Community Day: The Teacups and Balloon Explorers. Spin the teacups or soar 42 feet above the park in a hot air balloon ride. These are just two of the over thirty rides and attractions at Playland that include the iconic 1958 wooden roller coaster.

Playland is currently open 10:00am to 6:00pm on weekends and will be open Mondays to Fridays starting June 14th (from 10:00am to 3:00pm). Extended hours (10:00am to 7:00pm) begin July 1st.

This is the third year Playland has raised funds to benefit the Hastings Community Little League and Playland is hoping to pitch in more that $20,000 thanks to Community Day. Stop by on Saturday — the weather is set to be another gorgeously sunny day — and support the team.
