"People in my community usually go parks (to) play (on) plastic slides and metal monkey bars. They also go to their friends back yards or their very own. People can play games at parking lots sometimes if there are no cars. Kids will ride on the sidewalk on their bicycles, two wheels, three wheels, or even four. We do not judge. You can tell a lot from a person from the way they play. People go to parks and many other places where they will be safe and have very much fun. Why don't you come and join us. Go to the beach. Go swimming. Do something active. Go have fun!"
Part of the "Stories from Main Street" project--an effort to collect stories about small-town life across the United States. The project was the brainchild of the Smithsonian's "Museum on Main Street" program, an initiative that brings traveling exhibitions about subjects of national importance to small towns across America.
