The spirit of the Olympic Games will be relived in Woodlands Park in Maidenhead on Saturday at a fun day aimed to strengthen community spirit.
September Super Saturday will commemorate London 2012 with sporting attractions, face painting, a climbing wall and refreshments at the Phipps Close Recreation Area off Foliejohn Way.
The event's main feature is the 'Centre Games'.
Visitors will be encouraged to sign up for sports including tug-of-war, water balloon volleyball and challenge to keep a beach ball up in the air for as long as possible.
There will also be a 'Woodlands Park Pentathlon' as well as Olympic torch making, sumo wrestling and opportunity to ice biscuit medals.
It has been organised by Woodlands' Community Events, a collaboration of White Waltham Church, Woodlands Park Methodist Church and Housing Solutions.
David Andrew, vicar of White Waltham Church said: “The aim of these events is to build community in Woodlands Park."
He added: "They are a gift from us to the local community and we are delighted that so many people come along and have fun alongside their neighbours in Woodlands Park."
The free event will run from 2-5pm.
