Whether you have plans in place or are simply exploring some options, be sure to come to Constellation Field on May 6 when the Fort Bend Star and the Sugar Land Skeeters team up to bring you the inaugural Family Fun Day. The free event will be held from 2:30-6 p.m. and will feature several fun activities for children along with vendors with information about a variety of topics, including summer camps, schools, hospitals, churches, vacation Bible schools, music schools, retailers, doctors, dentists and so much more.
This is a day that will showcase the best of summer events and activities in the greater Fort Bend County area. It will be like a one-stop-shopping event for parents to learn about things they can do for and with their children over the summer.
Kids can participate in many activities throughout the day. Activities include having a photo taken with Swatson, the Skeeters mascot, visiting with and getting autographs from Skeeters players, playing on the Skeeters playground and bounce houses, walking around the Skeeters outfield and enjoying food purchased from the Skeeters food kiosks.
