Meet the Unhuggables of the Forest is a fabulous family event hosted by Citizens to Preserve Black Hawk Park Foundation and co-sponsored by the Sierra Club Eagle View Group. The annual event is an absolute delight featuring a variety of forest animals and the qualities that make them unhuggable/huggable and lovable/unlovable.

The blue team and the red team compete in a variety of improv games with the audience judging the funniest team in each round. At the end of all the rounds they tally the points and the best team wins! Additional humor is added by the referee, “Mr. Voice” from the sound booth, and hilarious memes and gifs on the big screen.

You don’t want to miss the quack-tacular duck hatching at the John Deere Pavilion. With four boys under 8 this is one of our favorite spring events. There are ducks, tractors, fun things to learn, and the magic of new life.
