This fun event is scheduled to take place on Friday, August 12 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, three-legged races, plus wheelbarrow races. You can also learn about family fitness opportunities that take place throughout the year through our Fit Family Challenge.
“This is a great way to reconnect with family and neighbors at Heritage Park for some friendly competition and summer-time fun,” said Laura Mortier, Canton Recreation Specialist. “The experience and memories is what excites everyone. It’s about families building those traditions in a healthy way, and actually spending time together that determines the success of this Field Day. We are committed to delivering unexpected fun and lasting memories for participants, all experienced while taking part in this special outdoor health and wellness activity followed by a movie in the park.”
This is a great photo opportunity, so attendees are reminded to bring a camera. No pre-registration is required. The $10 per family fee is required to be paid 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 Disney/Pixar’s animated movie “The Good Dinosaur” (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.
