Hanford Parks & Recreation and Main Street Hanford want to bring awareness to the importance of spending quality time with family and friends in our parks. The City of Hanford Parks and Recreation Department and Main Street Hanford strive to enhance the quality of life and meet the diverse needs of the community. Creating family fun is a top priority at Thursday Night Market Place with fun for the entire family. “It’s our goal to create a fun and positive atmosphere in downtown Hanford where people can spend quality time with one another,” said Michelle Brown, Executive Director of Main Street Hanford.
Also happening this Thursday, is Firefighter Appreciation Night! Make sure to visit Civic Park and show your appreciation for our local firefighters. Keeping our community safe is their first priority and for that, we all need to show support for our fire department. Stop by and say thank you, shake hands and take a photo to show them that you appreciate their service to our community.
