Event Details

August 19th 9:45 am – 3 pm

“Sometimes, real superheroes live in the hearts of small children fighting big battles”

August 19th will once again be dedicated to the little fighters in our community, enduring a medical battle. Inspired by the medical journey of the park owners’ daughter, Ava, this day is to raise awareness and funds.

Guests are encouraged to dress-up and explore the park as their favorite heroes and not every hero wears a cape! Some wear badges, crowns, scrubs, and even a sports jersey!

The park will be filled with participating vendor activity/information tables, prize auctions, children’s activities, live music, love & support.

Proceeds from all fundraising opportunities before and during the event, and 50% of every admission this day will be gifted to selected local families with a child engaged in their own fight and that needs “a hero”. Fun for the whole family, for a great cause!

Online donation page will launch July 1st.

In 2017, our community, near and far, collectively raised approx $40,000 for the cause, allowing us to help (5) children at the time of the event, and (2) more after the event with emergency situations. This was made possible by the businesses of our community, online donations, and ultimately YOU!
