Hawkins County Schools to Host Third Annual Family Fair

A fun and informational family-friendly event is coming to area on Saturday, March 28, at Surgoinsville Middle School. This will be the third annual County-Wide Family Fair sponsored by Hawkins County Schools in partnership with Tennessee Coordinated School Health and Civis Bank. Additional exhibitor sponsors include Pizza Plus, Mayfield Ice Cream, and Food City.

There will be something for students of all ages and their family members at this multi-purpose Family Fair, which will be held from 10:00 a.m .- 2:00 p.m.

“The goal of the Family Fair is to provide a forum for parents and families to exchange information in an atmosphere that is friendly and fun,” explained Dr. Michelle Harless, Assistant Supervisor of Federal Programs.

There will be over 50 exhibitors and organizations set up throughout Surgoinsville Middle School to provide family members and students with resourceful information about programs that benefit children and youth.

A variety of programs will be represented, including summer programs and camps, academic initiatives, safety programs, proper nutrition skills and children’s clubs.

In addition, children can enjoy inflatables, face painting, balloon animals, a petting zoo, and Mayfield ice cream.

“We wanted to have a way to provide families the opportunity to meet with organizations and agencies that benefit the whole child – academically, socially, physically, and emotionally. Having an event like this benefits the family which, in turn, benefits the child academically, “ said Harless.

Just BCuz Music will be headlining the entertainment.

The Family Fair is a free event to be held from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., Saturday, March 28, at Surgoinsville Middle School. Additional parking will be available at Surgoinsville Elementary School.
