ABOUT HARRY'S FUN FEST
“If you take the time to walk in, you will float out”
Harry's Fun Fest is an event that reflects the human spirit and the appreciation for what we have. It is a carefree day to spend with family, friends and neighbors in a beautiful outdoor setting. It’s the energy and passion of live music, the smell and smoke of foods being grilled on an open fire and the sound of laughter from people of all ages. In essence, Harry's Fun Fest is the culmination of all things Harry.
Our slogan, “Eat, drink and be Harry” goes beyond the love Harry had for food, fun, friends, family and laughter. We all realize we are going through some challenging economic times. The problem is we keep using it as an excuse to do nothing instead of a reason to take action.
When Harry was nine, he took what amounted to half his net worth and bought a struggling classmate a pair of new shoes. He placed them in his locker anonymously forgoing the recognition and accolades associated with doing something so kind. Harry knew he had everything that was truly important; a family that loved him unconditionally, great friends, and the belief that anything was possible.
This is the spirit of Harry's Fun Fest.
