What is the Familyfest Fun Cruise? The Familyfest Fun Cruise was created in 2020 as a new way for families to explore all that our amazing community has to offer for families! From 9am-3pm on July 23rd, families can spend the day together cruising to area businesses and organizations to participate in activities, enter to win prizes and maybe even get some deals!

Does our family have to cruise to all of the locations listed? No! Your family can go to as many or as few stops as you would like! Many families will start at Stop #1 (Sanford at 69th & Louise) to receive their FREE Event Backpack and then head to the stops that interest your family! You are in control of your family’s cruising experience!

Does our family have to cruise to the stops in numerical order? Your family can go to the stops in any order that you choose! You are in control of your family’s cruising experience!

That’s a pretty fancy unicorn I see on the Familyfest Fun Cruise marketing! Who is that? Fancy is super amazing Familyfest mascot. She likes to travel around the Sioux Empire and meet as many friends as possible every year! She will be out cruising our community during the month of July to get excited for  the Fun Cruise this year! If you see her, come say hi & take some pictures! She absolutely loves hugs from kids!

What is the cost of the Familyfest Fun Cruise? Absolutely nothing! It’s true! The Familyfest Fun Cruise is completely free for all families participating! 

Are there any giveaways or prizes that our family can score during the Familyfest Fun Cruise? There are loads of goodies for the families participating in the Familyfest Fun Cruise this year! Make sure to swing by the Sanford location at 69th & Louise to pick up your FREE Event Backpack filled with swag from friends of the Familyfest Fun Cruise. Then head out to the stop locations that your family has chosen and enter to win prizes at each cruise stop by scanning the Familyfest Fun Cruise Digital Passport QR Code and telling us about your cruise experience! Some cruise stop locations will also be giving away swag or have the opportunity to enter for additional giveaways that they are sponsoring!


What is the Familyfest Fun Cruise Digital Passport? At each stop location, there will be a QR Code for your family to scan. When you scan the code, you will be asked to enter your name, email and answer a question about that stop. Every time you scan a different QR Code and answer the question, you will earn one entry into our Familyfest Fun Cruise drawings for hundreds of dollars in prizes! Don’t forget you earn one entry each time you scan a new QR code at each location and answer the question, so have fun cruising to as many stops as you can!
