Frequently Asked Questions for the Familyfest Fun Cruise

July 22nd, 9am-2pm

The Familyfest Fun Cruise is back for a fourth year of fun! You will want to stay tuned to the Familyfest Facebook and Instagram pages and subscribe to the ‘hood newsletter to stay up to date with all the fun happening as we lead up to the main event on Saturday, July 22nd from 9am – 2pm.


What is the Familyfest Fun Cruise? Familyfest was reimagined in 2020 at the Fun Cruise as a new way for families to explore all that our amazing community has to offer! From 9am-2pm on July 22nd, families can spend the day together cruising to area businesses and organizations to participate in activities, enter to win prizes, and get some deals!


Does our family have to cruise to all the locations listed or in any order? No! Your family can go to as many or as few stops as you would like and in any order! Many families will start at the swag bags stop at Lake Lorraine and then head to the stops that interest your family! You are in control of your family’s cruising experience!


Wait, did you say Lake Lorraine? Yes, the swag bag stop will be in the Lake Lorraine parking lot by the Wings Gymnastics and Child’s Play Toys stops. The 500 bags will be handed out starting at 9 am, 1 bag per family. Swag bags sponsored by Black Hills Federal Credit Union.


How do I know what stops might fit our family? Our listings, starting on page 20, will have a colored dot to signify what age groups these stops might cater to. Use the key at the top of the listings to search for the perfect stops for your family.


What is the cost of the Familyfest Fun Cruise? Absolutely nothing! It’s true! The Familyfest Fun

Cruise is completely free for all families participating. Some stops may have additional items/services available for purchase, but there is no purchase required to visit each stop.


What is the Familyfest Fun Cruise Digital Passport? At each stop location, there will be a

QR Code for your family to scan. When you scan the code, you will be asked to enter your name, email

and answer a question about that stop. Every time you scan a different QR Code and answer the question, you will earn one entry into our Familyfest Fun Cruise drawings for hundreds of dollars in prizes! Don’t forget you earn one entry each time you scan a new QR code at each location and answer the question, so have fun cruising to as many stops as you can!
