FULTON – On Aug. 20, Friends of Fulton Parks will celebrate “A Day At The Park” at Voorhees Park from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with music, fun and games for children and adults, said Kelley Weaver, FOFP board member.
Voorhees Park is directly across the street from the Fulton Education Center, 167 S. Fourth St., said Susan Goutermout, event organizer and FOFP member.
“In addition to these activities, there will be food available for purchase, and we will be providing more information on how people can join Friends of Fulton Parks, as well as hear about improvements planned for our parks. It will be a fun day for families and anyone interested in improving our parks and our city,” she said. “We’ll also have information about an exciting new program, Fulton Block Builders, that’s being formed to improve our neighborhoods.”
Activities for the day include: Kingkat Music DJ service, a dunk tank, scavenger hunt, and Olympian Games that include beanbag toss, obstacle course, soccer skills, and a ping pong ball toss. Prizes for the event winners were donated from the community. Tricky Dick’s Roadside Grille food trailer will be on site offering a variety of food for sale.
Anyone who would like to volunteer for the event or receive more information can contact Friends of Fulton Parks at [email protected] or call Weaver at 315-402-7431.
