WEEKEND BEST BET: Family Fun Sports Fair


Parents can sign their children up for a variety of fall sports from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 17, at Encore Motorcars, 6000 S. Tamiami Trail.

Also at the event, children participate in arts and crafts and enjoy a bouncy house, dunking booth, mobile 20-passenger train, snacks and refreshments. Children will also get the opportunity to finger paint a real car.

Encore Motorcars will be accepting donations for the Suncoast Sports Club Scholarship Program. The scholarships go to low-income families who would not be able to afford fall sports otherwise.

According to Encore Motorcars owner George Manooshian, they have donated their venue because they say they are passionate about giving children opportunities.

“We have seen kids that would not other wise have had an opportunity to be out there. These sports are a great way for kids to be social and to learn,“ says Manooshian.

Parents can sign their children up for soccer, flag football, tackle football, basketball, lacrosse, T-ball, golf and tennis. This event is free and open to the public.
