The event will honor grandparents and great-grandparents by providing an opportunity for family members of all ages to spend time together on National Grandparents Day. Attendees will enjoy carnival-style games and food, miniature golf, arts and crafts, and other activities. 

The event is presented by Crescent Hill Partners, with additional support from Marshall and Sterling Insurance, AJ Signs, Ellms Family Farm, Digital First Media and Holiday Inn.

Admission is $10 per person. Grandparents and great-grandparents are free, courtesy of Crescent Hill Partners. The first 250 grandparents to register will receive a special giveaway upon arrival.
