The City of Ferndale is proud to announce a full slate of summer parks activities this year. With careful consideration and consultation with our health experts, the city is moving forward with our “2021 Summer of Fun.”
These events will be held outdoors in Ferndale parks and require that all attendees practice social distancing and wear a face covering to ensure everyone can have a safe experience.
“We know everyone is excited to get out of the house and do something fun this summer. We believe we have a way to come together as a community in a safe and responsible way,” said Mayor Greg Hansen.
