Troy Family Daze at Zion Christian Church
The Oakland county favorite returns, Sept. 13-16, 2012, and features stage shows, food, games and more for the whole family!
School may be back in session, but there's still a glimmer of summertime at the Troy Family Daze event – hitting Zion Christian Church, Sept. 13-16, 2012.
The four-day shindig is jam-packed with fun for the entire family – from contests to carnival rides to cotton candy.
The carnival rides are back this year – and you can hop on all weekend long. Visiting on Thursday? Snag a $10 ride-10 coupon. Friday festival goers can purchase a ride bracelet for $20 – and on Saturday, the price is $25.
Do your kids love to perform and be the center of attention? Then, check out the talent show contests, which are a huge part of this year's festival. Simply fill out an application to participate. All talents are welcome.
