Since it’s name change from Family Week to FamFest at year 25, FamFest has been a huge success! More fun than humans are allowed to have. That is what we can say after celebrating over twenty seven years with our very own community fair in the parking lot. Last year both young and old alike came to help us pass the Saturday that started early and finished off strong. We had the artist, Face Painting, Bouncer, Ponies and the entertaining DUNK A HUNK and a BBQ, all while listening to the sounds of the HEAT SEEKERS. In fact they were such a crowd pleaser we asked them back for this year.
Thank you to all of you that come out every year and buy tickets and help us make this FamFEST an AWESOME event for a Groovy Cause!
