There was no rain and all shine for this past weekend’s Vienna Family Fun Weekend! For the first time this summer, everything went off without a hitch! On Friday July 24th, there was a great turnout for the band “ Idletymes.” They played beautiful Bluegrass music in Spencer Park from 7-9 p.m. I had never heard Bluegrass music before, but it was great! On Saturday morning, there were children’s activities from 10 a.m. – noon, which generated a very large turnout! The kids enjoyed playing in the sprinkler, bounce house, (Backyard Inflatables), foam, (DJ Associates), and Fouse Photo Booth. When the children got hot from playing, they could cool off with free Sno Biz and water! In the evening, the older kids also got to enjoy foam, music, and the Fouse Photo Booth from 7-9 p.m. Afterwards, we showed the movie “Over the Hedge” for family movie night. Once again Sam’s Club was generous enough to provide free hotdogs and chips. The City of Vienna also served free popcorn, candy and water to enjoy during the movie.
Luckily, there are still more events to enjoy this summer! Saturday August 8th will be the last VFFW of the summer so you do not want to miss it! It will all take place in Spencer Park starting at 10 a.m. with fun children’s activities. Once again there will be a bounce house, foam, sprinkler, Fouse Photo Booth, and Sno Biz.
There is a special music event in Spencer Park featuring country music from 7-9 p.m. on Saturday, August 8th. Make sure to come ready to dance and have a good time, because there will be line dancing starting @ 7 p.m. with Debbie Williams! Wind down for the night while watching the movie “Frozen” with your family starting at 9:15 p.m. Join Elsa and Anna in the ice with free Sno Biz! Free popcorn, candy, and water will also be available during the movie.
Join us on Friday, August 21, from 7-9 p.m. for” Zumba,” Under the Stars in the Jackson pool parking lot. Zumba instructors from Brickhouse Cardio Club will be leading the fun for 2 hours of continuous dance. Join the party and jump in for as long as you can!
Friday, August 28th, is the last time of the season to put on your dancing shoes. Come out to Spencer Park and finish out the summer fun with the dance music of “Insured Sound” from 7-9 p.m.
I want to thank the Mayor and Council for supporting the creation of all these great events in the City of Vienna. We have beautiful parks and I am grateful for the opportunity to have fun and use them. We also want to thank the community for making these events a huge success!
