Bennington Family Center is planning a “Bennington Family Fun Day” event, set to take place this Saturday, June 3rd. For over 35 years, this event has offered a day filled with thrilling outdoor activities and wholesome entertainment for the entire community.

According to the organization, the day of fun kicks off at 7:00 AM with onsite registration immediately before a 5K fun run, with the rest of the activities starting at 8:30 in downtown Bennington.

Fun Day will offer a wide range of engaging activities to keep attendees of all ages entertained throughout the day including sports activities like 3-on-3 basketball (advance registration required), a cornhole tournament, and a local FFA chapter-hosted Ag Olympics.

Families and children can enjoy inflatable bounce activities, offering hours of laughter, jumping, and entertainment. These colorful and safe inflatables will create a playful atmosphere, providing children with a memorable experience, along with other children’s activities including a turtle race, cake walk, face painting and more.

Adding to the festivities, an antique tractor show will celebrate our community’s rich farming heritage. Attendees can marvel at the meticulously restored tractors, appreciating the history and craftsmanship behind these iconic machines.
