THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED and changed to a virtual/online event. Follow our social media sites for updates.
It is with a frustrated and sad heart that we must cancel "in-person" Superhero Fun Day for 2020 due to the upward trend of COVID-19 cases in our area. We want to act responsibly and respectfully during this time of uncertainty. We have hundreds of volunteers, vendors, participants that are needed for Superhero Fun Day and thousands of people that attend, so we do not want to put anyone at risk. Our main goal is to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer during September, childhood cancer month, and we are still going to do that, but it will all be online. So, don't miss out on those announcements and check back here often to learn about ways you can still join us for childhood cancer month.
Dust off your cape and pull out your mask for the 7th annual Superhero Fun Day September 12, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Athens Big Spring Memorial Park (Duck Pond) in Athens, Alabama. Enjoy free kids activities by local businesses and groups, food trucks, rented rides and inflatables, DJ entertainment and SUPERHEROES! A gang of about 30-40 Heroes come out for this event. Our Real Heroes section features law enforcement, military, fire, farmers, utility linemen, and this year we will feature real heroes from the community. Don't miss the Parade of Heroes at 10:30 a.m. when the Superheroes arrive. Visit the Superhero tent for story time at 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. Join the Supers on East Street for Line Dancing at 1 p.m. Kids in costume can join the Costume Walk at 3 p.m. and receive a medal (while supplies last).
