Dearborn, MI: As part of National Night Out, the Dearborn Area Chamber of Commerce and Dearborn Heights Police Department have teamed up to offer local families an alternative to crime and drugs at Family Fun Day on Tuesday, August 5, 2014 from 10 am – 8 pm. McDonalds, “The Future” is sponsoring this year’s annual event.

Families have the opportunity to visit over 40 participating Chamber member businesses from 10am to 4pm and collect tickets that will be used to redeem prizes (while supplies last).  The more businesses visited, the more tickets to win. Most businesses will host their own activities such as clowns, face painting, free drawings, in addition to special incentive offers including discounted food, dessert samples, drawings, games, etc.

At the start of the day, each family will receive a map directing them to all participating businesses.

Besides the prize tent, there will also be bouncy inflatables for the children, sponsored by the Dearborn Heights Kiwanis Club and the Dearborn Heights Rotary Club, “Happy the Clown”, a Trackless Train, sponsored by Chief Financial Credit Union, and entertainment provided by Music Authority in Dearborn Heights. The Chamber of Commerce will be selling concessions.  This year will also feature a family movie on the large screen at 7 pm, which is sponsored by Kevin McNamara.
