Bigger than ever, Pay It Forward Festival, Aug. 19, offers fun new activities

Pay It Forward Festival 2016

On Saturday, Aug. 19, 2017, get ready for the largest Spring Hill Pay It Forward Festival yet, including some exciting new activities that are sure to draw a crowd!

The 10th Annual General Motors-UAW 1853 Spring Hill Pay It Forward Festival, in partnership with the City of Spring Hill, is an all-day event presented by – a pro-local community and business media source – that encourages the community to “Live forward. Give forward. Pay it Forward.” It’s one of Spring Hill’s biggest annual events, drawing nearly 14,000 people last year, and providing an entertaining venue that elevates city connectedness and pride among residents, local businesses, and visitors by fostering a meaningful environment to build stronger community bonds.

This is the first year the festival is being held in the later part of the summer.  To ensure participants stay cool and are guaranteed all-day fun, there will be a 200-foot-long Giant Slip and Slide that you won’t want to miss! Festivalgoers also will have a chance to play on the Purple Crush Drop and Slide dual lane slip and slide. A waiver must be signed and wristband purchased for $1 for each slide participant. All proceeds benefit local charities doing tremendous work meeting the needs of families in our community. In addition, the event has set a goal to gather 3,000 pounds of food donations from festival attendees for The Well Outreach pantry.

Continuing annual activities will include kid fishing, football, bubble ball soccer, obstacle courses, health screenings, sports clinics, sack races, arts and crafts, a food court, top-notch live music, and much more.

Attendees of the lively festival also will be greeted by many sponsor stations hosted by civic groups; independent businesses; the health, wellness and fitness community; local-national chains; local sports leagues; schools; and local citizen volunteers, all poised to delight families with games and activities as they greet and meet the community.

The festival is 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 19, along the lake behind Tennessee Children’s Home, 804 Branann Hughes Circle, in Spring Hill. Use the Kedron Road entrance. Free admission with a non-perishable food donation for local food pantries and $1 for unlimited slip & slide fun.

“I am very excited this event has become so popular in our community,” said Festival Director Hazel Nieves. “The vision for this event has several facets. It’s a fundraiser for local charities, and it helps showcase local services and opportunities for families to take advantage of in their community that enrich and ensure a happier, healthier and connected Spring Hill area.”
