Marshmallow Drop
Hundreds of children participate each year.

Join Oakland County Parks for this enormous, exciting, free community event to kick off our spring season. A low flying helicopter will drop 15,000 marshmallows which kids will collect and turn in for a prize.

We are in need of almost 200 volunteers to help make this fun event safe for families in our community. Volunteers will assist event staff with parking, providing a safe boundary for kids to run in, handing out prizes, and other activities to support the event. This is a great event for groups.

Special events like this provide a safe, fun opportunity for our community members to come together and create lasting memories. Oakland County Parks and Recreation strives to provide superior, inclusive programming for all ages. By helping us provide these meaningful experiences for families, you are making a positive impact in the lives of children from all backgrounds and abilities. Join us today to create lasting memories for participants of all ages!
