Summer starts with Family Fest 2019!

Thursday, June 13, 2019

Forsyth Family Fest and the start of the summer are here! For more than three decades we’ve been gathering to celebrate our community with a family-oriented party in the park. It’s the perfect time to come out and see neighbors and old friends who make their way back home for all the fun.

As always, there will be good food, live music and much more for the whole family! Come out to see a magic show, pet some cute animals courtesy of Scovill Zoo’s Mobile Petting Zoo, snack on tasty treats at the Taste of Forsyth or ride some carnival rides.

Be sure to visit the First Responders Display at Forsyth Parkway and Weaver Road, and say thank you for their dedication and service to the community. There will be a really cool landing of an AirEvac Lifeteam helicopter in that area at 3 p.m. on Saturday that you won’t want to miss!

Free carnival rides get the weekend started at 5:30 p.m. Friday, followed by the annual community cookout, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The Annual 5K Run/Walk is Saturday morning at 8 a.m., followed shortly thereafter by the parade, which gets started at 10 a.m. Enjoy it all, and stick around to look up at the sky for the best fireworks show around on Saturday night!

The full schedule of events is listed below. Hope to see you there!
