It’s been a few years since we attended Dexter Daze with our playgroup, but we always had fun in a low-key environment. The activities (bouncer, rock wall, spider jump) and Mill Creek park location are new since we last attended. We would start on Friday by picking blueberries at Dexter Blueberry Farm and then visit Dexter Daze for lunch, entertainment, and browsing. Unfortunately the blueberry crop at Dexter Blueberry Farm was seriously affected by the rough winter and they are not open this year.
