Fallsmead@50 Fun Facts
This Week in Fallsmead: End-of-Summer Fun
Posted on August 28, 2018 3:21 PM by Melani Miller Harig
Fallsmead held a tennis tournament and Family Day at the pool on August 30 and 31, 1969, to celebrate the end of the first season of Fallsmead's pool and tennis courts.  The tennis tournament on August 30th was for kids ages 18 and under. The Family Day on August 31st included water polo, kids and adult swimming races, running races, a bubble gum blowing contest, newspaper races (whatever that was), a marshmallow contest, adult Dixie cup races, and an adult egg toss contest.
