Thursday Night Market Place in downtown Hanford

Main Street Hanford is excited to present Family Fun Night in honor of Wyland Gomes’ Birthday at Thursday Night Market Place in downtown Hanford! This Thursday, August 24th, pony rides, train rides, carousel rides, face painting and snow cones will be FREE! Wyland Gomes was a sweet boy whose childhood was tragically taken from him at the young age of 10. It is his family’s wish that children live a full, happy childhood with positive interactions with the adults they love most. To honor this, Main Street Hanford has dedicated one Thursday Night Market Place each year to his memory. This Thursday is dedicated to the children of the community with free activities made possible by donations from Wyland’s friends and family and Main Street Hanford. Please join us at Thursday Night Market Place to enjoy time with family and friends in wonderful downtown Hanford.
