Family Fest, Visalia’s Pride event, will be happening on Saturday, September 29th from 11-3:00pm at Mooney Grove Park. This is the fourth year of celebrating our community. We will have vendors, local groups and organizations, entertainment, games, raffles and more! As part of our events this year, and if we can find the participants, we will be holding a Karaoke contest. Get up there and show us your stuff! Maybe get your friends together and do a group performance. The winner will walk away with CASH and prizes! Returning this year is the crowd favorite, Waiting to Wed Game. It’s always a riot! Guys, I challenge you to participate. We’ve never had a male couple join in on all the fun. Represent yourselves! We have several guest performances this year, but I’m gonna keep you in suspense a bit longer… A tease? Who? Me? 🙂
Got kids? They will be entertained as well with the bounce house, games, piñata and craft stations. We will also provide bread to feed the ducks in the huge pond located right beside us. Family Fest has something for everyone! You can bring a picnic or buy food at the celebration, either way, come spend the day with us! There is plenty of shade, a covered arbor with tables and an entire section of the park, just for us! Pets and alcohol are allowed, please be responsible with both.
If you have a special talent you would like to showcase at the event, let us know! Or if you want to sign up for any of the games. Vendor booths are still available. If you are interested or have any questions, contact Brooke@lgbtvisalia.com.
A special thanks to Gay Central Valley. Their support helps make this event happen. We do have a continual need for donations and/or raffle prizes if you find that you are able to help us. Please contact me and THANK YOU!!
Family Fest really is Pride at its best, see you all in September!
