Family Events

Parents and Children
Our Family Events Committee organizes fun, safe, family-friendly events and activities for the children in our neighborhood.

With support from local businesses and organizations, children are invited to enjoy themed activities as well as games, crafts, art, dance, music, sports, face painting, balloon animals, prizes, give-aways, treats – and more.

All events are held in A. Montgomery Ward park (weather permitting) or an alternate indoor location. Attendance is free – and participation is open to the public.  Registration is required.  We hope to see you there!
