We want to be able to provide something that our families look forward to each year and we hope to expand it with even more family-friendly activities next year."

This year's guidelines will include that ALL minors under 18 must be accompanied by a parent after 4 pm. In addition, the following rules must be followed to ensure a fun atmosphere for all:


Entry to the Family Fun Fest is $5.00 per person or a $30 Wristband. The $5.00 admission is good for 1 ride ticket. Those 3 years of 62 years old and up may enter free of charge.

The Most Popular Fast Food Restaurants in Michigan

What are the most popular fast-food restaurants here in Michigan? If you're automatically assuming that the chain with the Golden Arches has the most locations, you're in for a shock.
