Area residents are invited to relive those childhood moments of excitement, joy and friendly competition during the Third Annual Family Field Day & Movie in the Park. This fun event that the whole family can enjoy is scheduled to take place on Friday, August 11, starting at 7 p.m., in Heritage Park, located west of Canton Center Road between Cherry Hill and Palmer Roads.
Featured activities that will be held on the north side of Heritage Park, include classic favorites, such as: potato sack races, shoe kicks, and distance throw. You can also learn about family fitness opportunities that take place throughout the year through our Fit Family Challenge.
“If you’re looking for some friendly competition and summer-time fun, this is a great event to take part in,” said Laura Mortier, Canton Youth Recreation Specialist. “Each year everyone looks forward to this popular outdoor activity that gets families to exercise together, encourages team spirit, and then follows it all up with a free movie in the park. What says summer more than that?”
Presented by Canton Leisure Services, this family-family event is a great photo opportunity; so attendees are reminded to bring a camera to capture these fun memories. No pre-registration is required. Registration fees are $11 per family for Canton residents and $13 per family for non-residents and can be paid on-site; cash only, please. Food, snacks, and popcorn will also be available for purchase on site. This event is open to the public and all ages are encouraged to attend, even grandparents.
Following the Family Field Day events, a special showing of DC Entertainment’s animated movie "The LEGO® Batman Movie” (rated PG) will be held outside in the park on the big screen starting at dusk. Food, snacks, and popcorn will also be available for purchase on site. Individuals who are not able to attend the Family Field Day activities are still encouraged to attend the FREE movie.
