The DeltaPlex Arena and Family Hope Foundation have partnered to produce the second annual Special Families Fun Fest Saturday, September 28th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the DeltaPlex Arena.

The event provides a low-cost, low-stress day filled with fun activities perfect for the whole family of individuals with special needs, no matter their age or disability. Popular draws like a petting zoo and bounce houses are complemented by amenities that will help individuals with special needs and their families relax and enjoy the day.

Fun Fest organizers have added many new attractions this year including bounce houses, a magician, a mime & music show, an instrument petting zoo and painting sessions. Special amenities include volunteers at every exit for safety, a sensory room for regulation, barrier-free access, sign language interpreters and a quiet room.
Admission to Special Families Fun Fest is $5.00, which includes 10 carnival game tickets. Tickets can be purchased either in advance or the day of the event at the DeltaPlex Box Office at 2500 Turner Avenue NW, Grand Rapids MI 49544 or online at Etix.com. Proceeds from Special Families Fun Fest will help support Family Hope Foundation’s scholarship program for therapy not covered by insurance.

Family Hope Foundation organizes and publicizes a series of events designed for families of individuals with special needs. From movies to family days at various venues, each is designed to provide families of individuals with special needs with affordable, disability-friendly, low stress, fun activities that they can participate in as a whole family.
Family Hope Foundation is composed of 16 board members from the West Michigan community who are committed to providing support to children with special needs and their families. Family Hope Foundation invests in children with special needs through family support, engaging community experts, advocacy through collaboration, and financial assistance to provide access to therapies.
