Food, carnival rides, 5K run, more planned for Forsyth Family Fest

Thursday, May 16, 2013

Forsyth Family Fest is set for June 14 and 15, so be sure you and your family don’t miss out on any of the good times. There will be carnival rides, bingo, music, hot dogs and hamburgers (of course!), cookies (of course!), a dunk tank … and most important of all, you and your family and friends.

It all gets rolling when the carnival rides open at 4:30 on Friday afternoon. The Village Picnic will be the place to dine on burgers, hotdogs, baked beans, cookies and more. Dinner will be served from 5 to 7 p.m.

Fun Run 2013: What’s new
Don’t forget the Fun Run on the morning of Saturday, June 15. There are a couple of new twists to this year’s 5K Race/Fun Run. If you have a Superhero or Princess in your family, bring them out in full costume to participate in a short walk prior to the big run. Medals will be awarded at the finish.

Also, dog lovers are invited to bring their socialized and leashed dogs out to trot along in the 5K run. Runners with dogs will start five minutes after the race’s shotgun start.
Fees are as follows: 5K Run/Fun Walk is $15 through May 30 and $18 on the day of the race; pre-registering earns you a free T-shirt. A $2 fee applies to all the rest: entering your Princess or Superhero; enjoying the company of your dog on the course; or participating in a 1-mile Fun Run.
