Questions about how the Familyfest Fun Cruise works? Read our FAQs below!

The Familyfest Fun Cruise is back for a fifth year of fun! You will want to stay tuned to the Familyfest Facebook and Instagram pages and subscribe to the ‘hood newsletter to stay up to date with all the fun happening as we lead up to the main event on Saturday, June 1st from 9am – 2pm. 

What is the Familyfest Fun Cruise?

The Familyfest Fun Cruise is the perfect way for families to explore all that our amazing community has to offer! From 9am-2pm on June 1st, families can spend the day together cruising to area businesses and organizations to participate in activities, enter to win prizes, and get some deals!  

Does our family have to cruise to all the locations listed or in any specific order?

No! Your family can go to as many or as few stops as you would like and in any order! Many families will start at the swag bag location, The Outdoor Campus, and then head to the stops that interest their family! At Lake Lorraine is Touch-A-Truck, sponsored by Knief River! Or head over to Eastway Bowl where you will find a Character Stop, sponsored by Black Hills Credit Union. You are in control of your family’s cruising experience!  

Wait, did you say The Outdoor Campus?

Yes, the swag bag location is The Outdoor Campus! Not only will you be able to pick up your swag bag here, but you can also enjoy some free fishing! The 500 bags will be handed out starting at 9 am, 1 bag per family. Swag bags are sponsored by Virtus Investment Partners.  

How do I know what stops might fit our family?

Our listings will have a colored dot to signify what age groups these stops might cater to. Use the key at the top of the listings to search for the perfect stops for your family.  

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. Some stops may have additional items/services available for purchase, but there is no purchase required to visit each stop.  

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!  

We saved the best for last! Want to cruise in style? Through May 27th,  you can enter to win one of the two “Cruising to Family Fun” giveaway packages from our friends at Voyage Federal Credit Union.
