SPRING LAKE — The weather gods smiled on the Spring Lake Heritage Festival’s Family Fun Night.

About 500 attended Wednesday evening's festivities, which included bounce houses, a rock climbing wall, children's games, hot dogs, ice cream, popcorn, raffles and more.

Zach and Stephanie Murray of Spring Lake Township brought their children — Elaina, 5, and Gavin, 3 — to Mill Point Park for the fun.

“There are so many activities to do,” Zach said. “The kids always have a blast. It's a good time to spend as a family.”

Russell Cherney, who will be a fourth-grader at Holmes Elementary School, climbed the rock wall.

“I got a little scared climbing to the top because I kind of don't do that well with heights,” the 9-year-old said.

Heritage Festival Committee member Karla Constantine said Wednesday’s weather couldn't have been more perfect.

“The kids are enjoying the new lava rock wall,” she noted. “And face painting is really popular this year. It's a good crowd. The weather helps a lot.”
