9th Family Fun Festival Pottsboro

Family Fun Festival9th Family Fun Festival signals back to school

The 9th Family Fun Festival (Billy Vier Family Festival) has become a Pottsboro tradition that signals back to school for Pottsboro area youngsters. Named after Billy Vier, who was the Pastor of the Preston Community Church, the festival is now sponsored by the Pottsboro Ministerial Alliance and is held the last Friday before Pottsboro ISD begins fall classes.

Pastor Vier and the Preston Community Church organized the first Family Festival in 2006 and it attracts over 1,000 visitors each summer. Pastor Vier passed away a few years ago and the Pottsboro Ministerial Alliance and tons of volunteers prepare games, food booths and fun activities for a night of free family fun.

This year, the free fun includes Door Prizes. Hot Dogs and Hamburgers while they last! Face Painting, Duck Pond, Obstacle Course, Homemade Ice Cream, Cotton Candy, Water, Snow Cones, School Supplies, Photo Booth, Vision Screening for kids, Ring Toss, Popcorn, Bounce House, and more. School supplies will be given out for all ages.

Everything is FREE! The 9th Annual Family Festival will be held in Friendship Park on FM 120 in Pottsboro, on August 14, 2015 from 5pm – 9pm and is open to the public.

The Pottsboro Ministerial Alliance is a cooperation of six churches in Pottsboro that work together to meet the physical and spiritual needs of the whole community, including an annual high school senior scholarship award and an annual Easter Sunday sunrise worship service.

PMA also organizes and serves an annual Thanksgiving meal for the entire community, and more than 300 people gather in fellowship and worship for this popular holiday event.

PMA coordinates and conducts the ”Great Days of Service” events for the Pottsboro area.  For two days, they scour our community looking for and meeting the needs of residents in Pottsboro and the surrounding areas.  Hundreds of people from our local churches mow yards, wash windows, build wheel chair ramps, repairing roofs and decks.
