Fun for whole family
The 10th annual “Festival of Fathers” will be held from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday, June 22, at the Hyde Park Splash Pad in Niagara Falls (corner of Hyde Park Boulevard and Pine Avenue). The festival, which is free and open to the public, will include games, prizes, snacks and crafts, as well as activities to engage children and parents together.
The purpose of the “Festival of Fathers” is to encourage positive father-child interaction, while celebrating dads, grandpas and father figures. But the whole family is invited – moms, dads and kids.
In addition to the games and activities, those attending will have an opportunity to obtain valuable information from many other local and state human service agencies.
Heathy Families Niagara, a program of Pinnacle Community Services, hosts this event.
