Every Day is ’Pic-a-nic’ Time at YOGI BEAR’S JELLYSTONE PARK™
Some of our more experienced campers may remember the movie Picnic which debuted in theaters and drive-ins (remember those) way back in 1955; others may have seen this movie for the first time on cable TV or Amazon. The award-winning film, starring William Holden, won many fans over with its depiction of an action-packed, town picnic taking place in Kansas over the Labor Day weekend. It featured dancing, family games, competitive sports, river paddle boats, the crowning of the town queen, and lots and lots of "pic-a-nic" baskets filled with homemade goodies. It was a wonderful Labor Day picnic extravaganza.
Our camper friends here at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in Robert, Louisiana know all about picnic fun and the upcoming Labor Day weekend. All of our fun loving bears, especially good old Yogi, along with Ranger Maurice and the entire staff, keep the action rolling here all day, every day, year round. It's no secret that Yogi Bear has a fondness for those baskets (just be sure to keep an eye on yours when he's around). Here at Louisiana's favorite family vacation spot, families make prized memories camping together and forming great friendships with fellow vacationers that last throughout the years are well worth it. Ready or not, school will start again soon. And we have plenty of excitement right here at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park.
