Family Fest: 30 years of celebrating home!

Thursday, June 15, 2017

It’s time for another Forsyth Family Fest! This years marks the 30th anniversary of this wonderful, family-oriented party in the park. With a number of improvements to an already-great public park system and the vision it takes to make Forsyth such a good place to call home, this year’s theme is appropriately “Field of Dreams.”

Field of Dreams

  • When: Friday, June 16 and Saturday, June 17
  • Where: Forsyth Park
  • What: Carnival rides, community cookout, live music and much more!

Forsyth Park is indeed the fun place to be this weekend on Friday and Saturday for friendship, tasty food and loads of action-packed fun for the whole family.

Free carnival rides start the weekend off at 5:30 p.m. Friday, followed by the annual community cookout, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The Annual 5K Run/Walk, 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk, Tot Trot is Saturday morning at 7:45 a.m. — there’s still room for more runners! Shortly after the run, the parade gets started at 10 a.m.

Come out and enjoy a horse-drawn wagon ride, face painting, a mobile zoo, a police dog training demo, a magic show, and live music, to name just a few of the interesting and entertaining events you’ll want to check out. And, the tasty Taste of Forsyth is on Saturday, along with more carnival rides and the best fireworks show of the season.
