The Human Relations Council (HRC) is inviting all Wake Forest residents to its 10th Annual Good Neighbor Day on Sunday, Sept. 20. This free, family-friendly celebration is scheduled from 1 to 4 p.m. at Holding Park, 133 W. Owen Ave.
Good Neighbor Day assembles Wake Forest residents from all walks of life for a day of food, fun and family entertainment. By bringing together a mix of cultures, music, ages and ethnicities, the event celebrates diversity and promotes goodwill among all of Wake Forest’s citizens.
A special part of this year’s Good Neighbor Day will be the presentation of the sixth annual “Good Neighbor of the Year” Award. The honor will be presented to one local youth and adult who consistently demonstrate an unfailing commitment to preserving, maintaining and improving the quality of life in their neighborhood and community.
Nearly 3,000 Wake Forest-area residents have participated in Good Neighbor Day since its inception in 2006. Offering food, dancing, local musicians, a disc jockey, face painting, prizes and recreational activities for both children and adults, this family-oriented celebration promises something for everyone.
The HRC encourages diversity and promotes goodwill among all citizens of Wake Forest. Good Neighbor Day serves as a catalyst for carrying out the town’s vision of “building a community populated by diverse groups whose common bond is a love of our town.”
In the event of rain, Good Neighbor Day will be rescheduled for Sunday, Sept. 27. Weather-related updates will be available by calling the Wake Forest Weather Line at 919-435-9569.
