Fellowship of Freethought's Annual Family Picnic is coming up on Father's Day, June 17th at Sandy Lake Amusement Park. This is one of our most popular events, so you don't want to miss it!
As the day draws closer, here's what you need to know:
FoF Annual Family Picnic
Sunday, June 17, 2018
11:30 am to 2:30 pm
Sandy Lake Amusement Park
1800 Sandy Lake Rd
Carrollton, TX 75006
Bring your favorite picnic dish to share. As a rule of thumb, bring enough to feed those in your party as if that were all you had to eat. We've decided not to grill this year. There are just so many of us, and some end up missing the fun because they spend their day manning the grill.
FoF will provide some drinks...tea, water, lemonade. We need volunteers to bring coolers of ice and drinks to share.
Alcohol is allowed (BYOB), but you can only drink at our pavillion and can't walk around the park with it. No glass containers allowed.
The park charges an entry fee of $2.00 per person (children 3 and under are free). Parking is free.
No pets allowed.
The park has 19 amusement rides for children and adults. Each attraction takes 3, 4, 5 or 6 tickets per ride. Some age and height restrictions apply on some attractions. Individual tickets can be purchased for 50 cents each, or you can buy a family discount book of 44 tickets for $20.
There are 2 massive swimming pools, so bring your suit if you think you might want to get wet. Access to the pool costs 10 tickets or $5 cash. Lifeguards are on duty and dressing rooms, showers and in-and-out privileges to the pool are included.
Miniature golf is $3.00 per person or 6 tickets, with club and ball included.
Typically, this event draws freethinkers from all over the Metroplex, representing ALL the various groups in our area. Whether you're an FoF regular or new to the group, this is a wonderful opportunity for fellowship and new friends, so we hope you'll consider coming!
