Waterford's Park It Family Fun Night


School’s out and the whole brood is back together again. It’s nice to have the kiddos around for the summer, but keeping those short attention spans occupied can be a costly challenge. Fortunately, fun for all is free for the taking at Waterford’s Park It Family Fun Night.

Free Family Fun at Waterford Park in Waterford, Michigan

Scheduled for Tuesday, July 23rd, Waterford’s Park It Family Fun Night event takes place at beautiful Hess-Hathaway Park.
