NASHVILLE, Tenn. -Tennessee State Parks along with the Tennessee Titans will be hosting the first ever "Play 60 Day in the Park" event at Long Hunter State Park from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on May 21.

The public is invited to learn about different ways people have played throughout history, from Native American games to vintage baseball to modern football drills and more. Special guests include T-Rac, the Titans' award-winning mascot, and Ramble the Raccoon, Tennessee State Parks' own beloved mascot, along with a music DJ and Tennessee State Park Rangers. Several Titans alumni will also be there to answer questions and play games with participants.

As part of the NFL's Play 60 campaign, Tennessee State Parks and the Tennessee Titans became partners in 2012 with the mutual goal to encourage youth to get at least 60 minutes of active play each day. Educational elements have been added into the program, including interactive exhibits with bald eagles, red-tailed hawks and other animals. Tennessee is the first state park system in the country to participate in the NFL Play 60 campaign. Since the partnership's inception, the program has visited over 200 schools, reaching 125,800 students.
