The Aloha Council of the Boy Scouts of America was not recruiting Saturday at Kukui Grove Center.
Denny Anderson, the BSA Kauai district executive, said, “Instead, we’re just out here hosting the Backyard Games to show people that we’re out here.”
Keiki and their parents spent time frolicking through oversized games like Connect 4, an oversized cornhole, horseshoes, ring toss and checkers set up inside as a hedge against inclement weather that earlier blanketed the island.
“The weather is nice,” said Mary Lardizabal, helping with the gathering. “We have a lot of visitors who are enjoying themselves while waiting for their planes. It’s a shame the bad weather came earlier.”
Kukui Grove Center sets up backyard Games on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Aug. 4 near the Keiki Korner Play Area.
