Free Family Festival in the Park – Saturday, November 15

Tucson Parks and Recreation Department presents the 9th Annual Family Festival in the Park. This free community-wide event is about having family fun and a terrific opportunity for Tucson Parks and Recreation to showcase programs and activities offered to the community. This year, we have partnered with the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona, so please bring a donation of canned goods to the festival to help support its cause. The Tucson Breakfast Lions Club will be offering free vision testing for children and accepting donations of your old prescription eye-glasses. The Lions Club will also offer a free pancake breakfast to kids and those that donate a pair of prescription eye-glasses.

The event is expected to attract more than 12,000 Tucsonans. Family activities include stage entertainment, carnival games, inflatables, crafts, golf clinics, tennis games, a tour of the rose garden, and demonstrations of pottery and drawing offered by the leisure class unit. The Reid Park Zoo will have free admission, and the Edith Ball Adaptive Recreation Center will host an afternoon of free swimming from noon to 4 p.m. Tucson City Golf will offer a free 10-minute golf instruction at the Randolph Driving Range adjacent to the park on Alvernon Way, from 10 a.m. to noon. Entertainment will be presented throughout the day and a variety of foods will be available for purchase through local vendors.

A special thanks to our event sponsors: Tucson Water, Pyramid Federal Credit Union, CareMore Health Plan, Health Choice Generations, Northwest Medical Center, Bear Essential News, Wendy’s, Macaroni Kid, and Arizona Families.
