Family Fun Day returns to Edgewater

Edgewater is seeing off the summer with a fun day for all ages.

Edgewater is seeing off the summer with a fun day for all ages.

The second annual Family Fun Day takes place on August 21 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Edgewater Community Hall.

The day will feature games and activities for all ages, with indoor and outdoor activities.

Food and refreshments will be available, such as hot dogs, hamburgers and pop.

“Originally, we were trying to think of what we could do for an end of the summer event,” said Tammy Tutte, one of the event organizers, on how the day event came about. “We have a campground and we wanted to engage more people to do something in Edgewater, and for it to be for all ages. It’s very important that it’s family-oriented.”

The Family Fun Day was first held in 2009 with positive attendance and feedback from those who came out for the day. Tutte hopes that those who came for the first event will recall the fun and return again for this year’s.

“We’re going to utilize the park and the inside of the hall for games and activities,” said Tutte.

Inside the community hall will be games for children ages three and younger, where supervision may be easier and, if it’s a hot day on August 28, it will be safer and cooler for young children.

Outside, events like bocci ball and other games will take place for older children and adults. Horse rides will also be available, and a dunk tank.

“For every game you play, there is a prize,” said Tutte.

The prizes are age-suitable and come in a variety of forms, and have been collected or donated over time for the event.

“The whole idea is to keep Edgewater families here for the last weekend of August, and entertain those who may be going back home, before the stress of school starts up,” said Tutte.
