Sheridan Celebrates

Sheridan Celebrates is Serious about Fun & Games

There were many things in the last couple of years that were simply “no fun.” But that will all change in 2022 when Sheridan Celebrates Fun & Games. Mark your calendar for Saturday, September 24th and attend the Sheridan Celebrates Parade and Festival when it returns to the lovely lawn of City Hall, 4101 S. Federal Blvd. 

The Sheridan Celebrates Committee members always put a lot of thought into selecting the annual theme. They consider the needs of participants, and most importantly strive to create excitement for attendees. At the November meeting, the Committee reflected on the hardships that so many members of our community have encountered during this unsettling pandemic time. Our lives changed. So, now is the time to move forward with joyfulness and playfulness. According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, fun and games means light amusement. Committee members are committed to lightening your load through a variety of activities that will engage you and your family in amusement, fun and games.

Every community member can be involved. Sheridan Mayor and Sheridan Celebrates Committee Chair, Tara Beiter-Fluhr stated, “When you think of festivals, you often think of fun and games. So, we are taking that to heart this year. Let’s all have the kind of fun we did as kids and make this year’s festival one our kids will remember.” Families can join the Children’s and Grand Parade. It’s free to enter. Exhibitor booths will be available at the Saturday, September 24 festival for a very reasonable fee. Local business owners are urged to become sponsors and assist in bringing even more fun to the festival through live performances and family-friendly entertainment.
