OSWEGO, New York – Farnham Family ServicesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Second Annual Farnham Family Fun Day will take place this Sunday. September 20th, from 1-4 pm at Breitbeck Park in Oswego.
Central New York families are invited to attend the event as Farnham Family Services welcomes a variety of sponsors and new vendors/participants for what is sure to be a day of laughter and fun.
The event is free of charge and intended for children aged 14 and under. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Designated rides and games will be available for younger children.
According to Jeanne Unger, MS, Executive Director at Farnham Family Services, the event is a collaborative effort between many CNY-based organizations. Participating at the event will be Radio Disney, DoughertyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Inflatable Rides, OCO Health Services, Families and School Together, YMCA, Family Health Plus, Fidelis Care, Oswego Neighborhood Watch Program, OCO WIC Program, Boy Scout Troup 888, Literacy Volunteers, OCO Youth Services, Oswego Fire Department/fire safety, Oswego County/City Youth Bureau, and the Oswego ChildrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Theater.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Last year’s event was a great success at the Oswego Speedway, but we wanted to move the venue this year into a park setting and were fortunate to be able to secure Breitbeck Park,” said Unger. “We’reÃ‚Â excited to again be partnering with Radio Disney and all the others for our second Family Fun Day. The Ã‚Â feedback and enthusiasm from last year was tremendous and we hope that families will once again show their support by coming out to Breitbeck on the 20th.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The event will include a variety of inflatable bouncy rides, games, magicians, food, fun and more! There will also be special prize give-a-ways occurring every thirty minutes, and the Disney Prize Wheel will also be returning.

The raffle has been extended to November 6 and winners will be announced that evening at the Farnham Unplugged: Rock the Arts event at the American Foundry. A total of 12 cash prizes will be awarded.
