The family-friendly fair will feature fun and information for all ages.
The fair will be held from 6-8 p.m., and a number of Cheatham County groups, organizations and businesses will be on hand to promote the Healthier Tennessee program.
The program strives to increase the number of Tennesseans who are physically active for at least 30 minutes five times a week, promote a healthy diet and reduce the number of people who use tobacco.
“The fair will showcase the various health and nutrition opportunities that are already planned in Cheatham County in 2017,” said Claudette Fizer, the Cheatham County School District’s parent involvement coordinator. "Participants will receive a beautiful 12-month calendar as they enter. I know families are going to want to mark dates throughout this event as they begin to plan their spring, summer and fall activities."
Fizer said the come-and-go event will also help families to gather information on all that the county has to offer for them to get out and play, have fun and enjoy the beauty and resources available here.
There will be demonstrations, giveaways, games, activities and tasting stations for the whole family to enjoy.
Representatives from the Parks and Recreation Departments, U.S. Corps of Engineers, Harpeth River State Park, Adventureworks and more are scheduled to attend.
The Cheatham County Health Department, Cheatham County Master Gardeners, Cheatham County UT/TSU Extension Office, Cheatham County Community Enhancement Coalition and Cheatham County Public Library will have booths.
Members of the Senior Center at Ashland City will demonstrate Tai Chi, yoga, and S.A.I.L. and ACES students will also participate with special demonstrations, including the Cha Cha Slide.
The fair is being sponsored by Cheatham County School District-Title I Department, the Cheatham County Health Department and Cheatham County Community Enhancement Coalition.
