Inaugural Frisco Fair Offers a Fair Deal for Frisco Veterans

What do Purple Hearts and cotton candy have in common? Not much, unless you consider the confection's potential health impact.

Actually, there is a connection, and it will be on full, festive display in Frisco on March 28, with the grand opening of the Inaugural Frisco Fair, hosted by Frisco Fresh Market.

3.28.19-Frisco-Fair-Veterans-Social-pdfFrisco Fresh Market and the Frisco Veterans Advisory Committee (FVAC) are collaborating to support Mayor Jeff Cheney’s initiative to “honor, celebrate, and award Frisco's Veterans for the contributions to our country, and leverage their talent to strengthen our community and local businesses,” reads the group's mission statement.

The event is another edition of Mayor Jeff Cheney's Veterans Social, designed to honor and engage the over 3000 veterans that call Frisco home. The FVAC was established to take the city beyond a “veteran-friendly” community to a “veteran-ready” one, where those that served can contribute to Frisco's economic and cultural growth.

Veterans and their families will be treated to one free amusement ride and one free meal ticket for participating food vendors, from 6 pm – 8 pm “while supplies last,” said FVAC organizer Shenna Lawless. “Bring the kids, bring the family, bring a fellow Veteran…come have a great time!”

The FVAC invites veterans and their families to RSVP here.

Come One, Come All…

…step right up and have a ball! The Inaugural Frisco Fair will be an eleven-day, family-fun event with the best in class rides, foods, and family entertainment.
