Florida City held its Family & Friends Fun Day at Loren Roberts Park this past Saturday August 22nd, 2015.

The event was hosted by Commissioner Sharon Smith-Butler, who was seen bouncing around from place to place making sure everything was up to snuff.

The free event featured food, music, public out reach, giveaways and educational diversion in a fun park atmosphere.

One of the highlights was an up-and-close demonstration of a fully-loaded U.S. Customs and Border Protection helicopter. The flying machine was equipped with enough firepower and rescue gear to meet virtually any situation that came its way.

Several teams challenged each other in a game of basketball at the adjacent Florida City Gymnasium. Nearby a buffet lunch was set up for all the hungry attendees.

At another location of the park organizations gave away free book bags and school supplies. The demand was so great that more will be ordered for those who could not receive any said the city administration.

Florida City Mayor Otis Wallace called the event a "smashing success" and said Butler had done a "terrific job."

The Commissioner's voice was noticeably horse after the long weekend.
