Family Fest is free for all to attend and is open to the public.

Families can enjoy activities for all ages and learn what local businesses, groups and organizations can do for families. This year will include two special performances at 11:00am and 1:00pm by The Dollipops, an engaging, high-energy, highly interactive kids’ show.

“Family Fest is becoming a tradition for many local families,” said Fair & Events Center CEO Jeremy Parsons. “The addition of The Dollipops will make this great family experience even more enjoyable.”

Other features include Safety City, which will allow families to interact with local law enforcement, firefighters and EMT staff; Spencer Hospital’s “glow germ” hand washing activity; the H.E.A.T. Tactical Vehicle; and Spencer Municipal Utilities “touch a truck” station.
