TELL CITY – Prizes will be given out during Smokey’s 70th birthday party, hosted by staff of the Hoosier National Forest.

Although it is Smokey’s birthday, he’ll have something for every kid and also some door prizes.

The party will be from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday, July 26, at Sunset Park in Tell City.

Cake and activities will be available for children. Door prizes will be drawn at 10 a.m. and will include two riding lessons at Ramey Riding Stables, two Indiana Caverns tickets, gift certificates to local restaurants and free camping.

 Smokey Bear will arrive at 10 a.m. to give out prizes and greet the children.

The Hoosier staff invite everyone to join Smokey for cake, spray a fire hose, dress up as a firefighter and learn several fire prevention tips.

Smokey may be 70, but he has no plans for retirement as his message “Only You Can Prevent Wildfires” is as relevant as ever. He invites all children to attend and learn more about preventing fires.
