An enjoyable and memorable part of the Florida Family Fun Fest is the recognition of Floridians who have contributed their special skills, talents and time to the betterment of the community. Nominations are solicited and the Fun Fest Committee selects the final award recipients, who are publicly recognized from the Main Stage at Fun Fest, which will be held on Sun., Aug. 12 from 1 to 8 p.m. in the Village of Florida NY.
