St. Pete Housing Authority throws Family Fun Day for the Community

ST. PETERSBURG, FLORIDA ‐ On Saturday, June 9, 2018 the St. Petersburg Housing authority (SPHA) teamed up with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to throw a Family fun day picnic for the community of St. Petersburg, kicking off the summer season. 

The event was in conjunction with this year’s HUD strong families Initiative to empower fathers, mothers and children. HUD has an annual tradition of working hard to involve fathers in the lives of their children for Father’s day. However, this year they expanded the focus of the event to include mothers, children and parents of all kinds.

The SPHA got behind this initiative and threw a Family Fun Day picnic in Crescent Lake park on Saturday, June 9, 2018 from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m., inviting all their HUD‐ assisted families to join them in a day of family bonding. Families were treated to an exciting afternoon of games, music, face painting, balloons and food.
