The 25th annual Festival of Fathers honors importance of positive male role models

Print

The 25th Annual Festival of Fathers was held Saturday at North Commons Community Park in Minneapolis. Hundreds of Northsiders joined their neighbors to enjoy dance and band performers, scale the rock-climbing wall, enjoy pony rides, a petting zoo, an inflatable slide and food booths. The event also featured employment leads, free legal advice and health information.

The annual event seeks to strengthen the positive role and perception of men, specifically fathers, in their families and communities. It honors the importance of fathers in the lives of their children and families.
