Friends of the Community is hosting the third annual “Beulah Family Day” Sept. 14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the grassy lot across from the Bridge Church located at 1867 Lee Road 270.
During the last three years, the community-oriented, family-friendly event has averaged between 350 to 400 people, according to event co-organizer Lamar Sims.
“At this event, we try to have something for everyone. I think it’s really something that brings the community together for a day to enjoy each other’s company,” Sims said.
Wristbands are required for admission, costing $1 for individuals and $3 total for families of three or more members.
For children, there will be arts and crafts, balloons, face painting done by Beulah High School cheerleaders, inflatables, train rides provided by Ballard Party Rentals, tricycle obstacle race and more.
Adults will be able to enjoy a cake walk, car show, live entertainment and enter into a gun raffle, costing $10 for one ticket or $25 for three tickets. Various local vendors will have booths set up during the event.
Beulah High School’s band and cheerleading programs will perform their routines at the event. Most of the event proceeds will be donated to those respective programs help cover the costs of equipment, travel and uniforms.
Those interested in participating in the car show are asked to call Terry Bullock at 706-773-4361 or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The registration fee is $15, and categories that will be judged include “Best Paint”, “People’s Choice” and “Top 10.” Each entry will receive a dash plaque.
