FORSYTH COUNTY – Competitors will travel and participate in several sporting events this summer, though they will be closer than the Olympics and the competitors will be smaller.

On June 22 from 10 a.m. to noon, Forsyth County’s parks and recreation department will host its annual Day Care Field Day at Fowler Park for children ages 5 and up, where they will participate in several events such as sack races, running races and relays.

The department has held the field day event for more than 10 years and is intended to promote fun, health and wellness.

Day care centers wanting to participate need to sign up before registration closes on Friday.

Registration is $50 per center, with no limit to how many children can attend.

In the event of bad weather, the field day will be canceled, and registration fees will be refunded in full.

Fowler Park’s address is 4110 Carolene Way in south Forsyth.

To register, contact Fowler Park Recreation Supervisor Charlie Sheffield at (770) 886-4088 or
