Family Fun Day Returns to Indian Trail on June 3

Family Fun Day - June 3, 2023

Indian Trail’s biggest event of the year is happening on Saturday, June 3! Family Fun Day will take place from 2-9:30 p.m. at Crooked Creek Park (5900 Oakwood Lane). The event includes free rides, games and entertainment, food trucks, and local vendor tents, plus a spectacular fireworks show to wrap up the fun.

“Our goal in the Parks and Recreation Department is to bring the community together and provide memorable experiences for residents and visitors,” said Hayden Kramer, Parks and Recreation director. “Nothing does that better than Family Fun Day. There is something for everyone – rides, live entertainment, food, games, and shopping from local vendors. The famous fireworks show creates a magical end to the event and is an official welcome of summertime to Indian Trail. We hope to see you there to experience this one-of-a-kind event!”

There will be no on-site parking at Crooked Creek Park. Those attending will need to take a shuttle from one of the following locations:

  • Poplin Elementary School
  • Union Prep Academy
  • First Baptist/Metrolina (main campus)
  • Porter Ridge High School

As space allows, guests can also park at Sardis Baptist Church and Sardis KinderCare; however, there will be no shuttle service from these parking lots. Guests must walk to the park from these locations. Handicap parking will be available at Sardis Elementary School for those with the appropriate state-issued handicap permit. ADA shuttle service will be available at this location.

Shuttles will begin running at 1:30 p.m. and will continue through 10:30 p.m. The shuttles will make a continuous loop and are expected to run between each location every 15-20 minutes. No dogs, except for service dogs, will be allowed on the shuttles. 

In addition to the park’s splash pad and playgrounds, families will be able to enjoy several rides and attractions, including a giant Ferris wheel, giant swings, spinning cups, a rock wall, American Ninja Warrior Warper Wall, a trackless train, and more. There will also be free carnival games and prizes, as well as a free balloon artist and face painting.

Approximately a dozen food trucks will be on site serving everything from southern favorites and fresh-squeezed lemonade to fair favorites and sweets and treats.

Captain Jim is Magic and SkyHigh Skylar the Stilt Walker will be providing magic tricks and entertainment throughout the day, along with the Natty Boh Duo band, who will play from 2-5 p.m. Guests will also be able to enjoy a performance by the Metrolina Native American Association at 5:30 p.m., which will be provided in partnership with the Union County Community Arts Council.

The fireworks show is scheduled to begin around 9:15 p.m.

In preparation for the event, Crooked Creek Park will be closed on June 3 from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m., when the event begins.

“Family Fun Day is a wonderful event, and one our residents should be proud of,” said Mayor David Cohn. “It’s one of my favorite events of the year. The best part is the fireworks show. I think it gets bigger and better every year. I look forward to watching the display and enjoying the rest of the event with my family, friends, and neighbors. Thank you to our Parks and Recreation Department for your hard work in putting on such a great event.”
