ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN) — The Enterprise Parks and Recreation Department is preparing for its festival in the park set for this Saturday.
So what is the purpose of this event? Why does Enterprise host this event?
So every year we do this event, it’s always the first Saturday in May we just do it as a way to bring the community together. It offers you know, families, a great free opportunity to do a lot of things and it’s just a great opportunity to get everybody outdoors and together. When we’ve been six feet apart for over a year.
But you said that you’ll hold this event every year, but for some people the name might be kind of new. Why is that?
In previous years we called it Children Festival in the Park. And this year we did change it because we found out that as the event kind of grew and changed, there was really something for everybody. So it’s not really just for families with small children anymore, it’s really for everybody. So we encourage everyone to come out.
Where can people go to find tickets or find out any more information about this event?
It’s completely free, so we don’t have any tickets. There are no ticket sales. Just show up and everything will be free with the exception of the food trucks. If you’d like to check out, we’ve got you know, Mexican food. We’ve got Jamaican food; we’ve got American food. We’ve got great stuff, so that’s the only thing that’ll cost.
What events will y’all be having in the future?
So every year we also do a Halloween event and that’s in the fall. So that year I’m sorry this year we’ll be doing speaking in the city. So that’s actually a virtual game all the way around town where people can play riddles on their phone and get prizes and goodies from our sponsors. It’s a really fun. Time and we’ll have more information about that in the fall.
