It's almost become a staple for the kick-off of summer in Genesee County, and this year is looking bigger and better than ever. The Grand Blanc Family Fun Fest is back with a weekend filled with family fun & entertainment.

Downtown Grand Blanc is set to come alive starting Thursday as the rides, games, and concessions as the Grand Blanc Chamber Family Fun Fest officially kicks off at 5 pm. The high school parking lot has been a buzz with preparations since the rides arrived early in the week.

This year festival-goers will enjoy rides, delicious carnival concessions, games, a wide variety of vendors, a rock-climbing wall, and more. There will also be a special Celebrity Dunk Tank on Saturday. Friday night will also feature a huge fireworks display at 10 pm for all to enjoy.

"This year is bigger and better than ever, and we've taken extra precautions to make everyone's safety is at the forefront, and everyone has a good time. Coming back from COVID and have the carnival bring all the big rides back with the concessions will make this a fantastic event", Grand Blanc Chamber President Leigh LaForest told us.
