Let your young scholars take a break from that homework – and head to Troy Family Daze for some family fun. Troy Family Daze takes place at Zion Christian Church and runs Sept. 12-15, 2013.
Your kids will want to head over to the midway for giant rides and an adrenaline rush! Snag the special 10 rides for $10 coupon for 4-9 p.m. Thursday Sept. 12 and save a few bucks on the fun.
Be sure to take little ones to check out the Animal Oasis, complete with a farm animal petting zoo, camel rides, exotic animals and birds on display. There's a children's area featuring entertainment and crafts, too; this spot is geared towards the preschool and elementary school-aged crowd.
Troy Family Daze has been a tradition for 45 years now. So, to celebrate, there will be Old Tyme Games, featuring activities from the early years of the festival.
