Excerpt from Forty Years of the National Recreation Association

Recreation in Richmond, Virginia, where Festi val Week was held during the month of August.

In theory, Festival Week was a series of sum mer season closing programs. Actually it was an elaborate interpretation of American life by the boys and girls of the city. This theme, which was broken down into five phases of American history, provided a colorful background and left a wide open field for the imagination of the youngsters, the playground directors and the specialists as signed to the project.

If you had been in Richmond and had seen some of these final events, you wouldn't have thought that only a few months before at a staff training institute the plans for the summer theme had been presented to the playground directors for their ap proval. Accepted wholeheartedly by the directors, the American Life theme was passed on to the play ground children with some idea for its develop ment toward a final festival.
