Family Fest to celebrate Village’s 60th birthday

Thursday, May 31, 2018

Come out to the park for fun June 15-16

It’s almost time for our favorite weekend on the calendar — Forsyth Family Fest! The theme for this popular event is “Forsyth’s 60th Birthday Party!” This fun, family-oriented festival in Forsyth Park, which has been going on now for three decades, is coming up June 15-16.

Make your way out to Forsyth Park for a weekend of what Family Fest is known for: great food, great fun with your friends and neighbors and rides and games that will appeal to the whole family.

As is our tradition, the free carnival rides get the weekend started on Friday evening, followed by the annual community cookout. The Annual 5K Run/Walk, 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk is Saturday morning beginning with the Tot Trot at 7:45 a.m. — if you’re interested in participating, there’s still time! Then, make sure you stick around for the parade, which gets underway after the run at 10 a.m.

There’s something for everyone so come out to eat, to play, to dance, to listen to live music and much more! Family Fest concludes on Saturday night with what we think is the best fireworks show in the area. Hope to see you there!
