School is almost out and it’s time for some fun!
Mark your calendars for Father Fest 2022 on May 14 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Gene and Jerry Jones Family Field at Workman Junior High School. (See map of the site.)
The free outdoor event is a fun celebration of fatherhood and families! All are invited to enjoy live music, food, prizes, giveaways, vendors, fun interactive family activities and game trucks with Just Dance, Minecraft, Roblox, Fortnite and Mario Kart. Families will have a great time together and leave empowered and equipped with resources for this summer and everyday life.
“While families enjoy the fun, they also strengthen bonds as they create memories,” said Johnathane Gaffney of Arlington ISD’s parent and community engagement department.
This event is for everyone. You don’t have to go to Arlington ISD or even live in Arlington. Everyone is welcome!
Register here for Father FEST today!
