Cliff Williams / The Outlook Dadeville's Pennington Park will host a Fun Day Saturday courtesy of Heard's Daycare.

Children and adults alike can enjoy a fun game and food Saturday all for free.

Geneva Heard has owned and run Heard’s Daycare in Dadeville for 28 years. Last year the COVID-19 pandemic forced Heard to close for three months but her families stuck with her. Now that the pandemic is slowing, she wants the community to have a day of fun.

“Everybody has been inside or away from everyone for so long,” Heard said. “Everybody has been wanting to get out. We want to have a fun day with kids where parents don’t have to spend a dime.”

Heard said the Fun Day will be at Pennington Park from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. with an opening ceremony at 9 a.m. Heard said there will be lots to do.

“We will have bounce houses, rides and more,” Heard said. “We are doing a few things like volleyball and basketball for kids and adults. There will be things like cotton candy, popsicles, water and other food items and it’s all free.”

Heard said Tasheba Jefferson of Judy Patottie's is also helping put on Saturday's fun day.
