Every July, Andover comes together to encourage community bonds with its Family Fun Fest Celebration. The event is home to plenty of activities that will keep the entire family entertained. A 5K fun run, a street dance, and a firework show can all be enjoyed. The kids will get a thrill from the mini donkey cart rides and the parade hosted by local businesses. If you want to browse, stop by the community booths and view the large array of arts and crafts for sale. You will not leave hungry since food vendors are set up throughout the event.
With over 67 parks in the area, there is something for just about everyone. Kelsey Round Lake Park, Sunshine Park, Prairie Knoll Park, and Andover Station North Park are the largest in Andover and they all feature various outdoor amenities. Ball fields, play equipment, and open areas are located within these parks for you to enjoy. Picnic areas, grills, and restrooms are also available for your convenience. At scheduled times throughout the year, each of these parks hosts special events in order to entertain and educate the community. Sections of the parks can also be rented so you have a place to host your own occasion.
