Forsyth Family Fest means summer and fun!

Thursday, May 30, 2019

Be there for the fun in Forsyth Park June 14-15

Forsyth Family Fest means fun, family and friends! Forsyth Family Fest means summer! As the weekend most likely to be circled on the calendar — June 14-15 — by your kids (or you) comes into view, let’s get you ready.

Come on out to Forsyth Park for this family-oriented neighborhood bash to enjoy food, live music, carnival rides, friendships old and new, and more. The theme for this year’s event is “Forsyth Famous.”

Things get rolling on Friday evening with free carnival rides and the community cookout. New menu additions this year to the familiar hamburgers and hot dogs will be pork chops and brats. NOTE: Please be aware that the price for the meal will now be $3.

The Family Fest 5k, 1 Mile, and Kids’ race is Saturday, June 15, with events starting at 7:45 a.m. Sign up at runsignup.com/forsythfamilyfest before June 1 to be guaranteed a dri-fit shirt as a race participant. Then line up along the parade route Saturday morning by the 10 a.m. start to catch your share of candy.

Meet local emergency first responders as Hickory Point firefighters and Macon County Sheriff’s Office deputies will be on hand. Check out the medical helicopter, firetruck and police vehicle. In addition, there will be K9 demonstrations on Saturday.

Watch Forsyth Youth League play some baseball and softball Friday and Saturday. If you feel like playing yourself, Cubs and Cardinals fans will have a chance to square off (wearing their favorite team apparel) in the Forsyth Rivalry Games, the 16-inch softball variety. These games will be divided by age group and team allegiance.

Enjoy the magic of the Amazing Dudley, play bingo or make some new wildlife friends at the Scovill Zoo Mobile petting zoo. Come hear the live music of SmoothTimes Friday night and Lunar Jive Machine on Saturday night. There’s truly something for everyone!

And, of course, the big finish to the weekend comes Saturday night with what many believe are the best fireworks in the area.

The June 13 edition of the Village Vision will include a detailed schedule of events.
