Ocala Recovery Fest to remember those lost to addiction

The Ocala Recovery Fest will return to Ocala this year to remember those lost to addiction and celebrate others on their journey to recovery.

The fourth annual Ocala Recovery Fest will be held at Tuscawilla Park (829 NE Sanchez Avenue) on Saturday, September 11, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The event will feature a Memory Wall to honor loved ones that have been lost to addiction. Guest speakers from the community will share their personal experiences.

Pony rides, face painting, vendors, a selfie booth, and a balloon artist will be available in the Kids Zone.

Live music will be provided by Mike Smithson.

The event is free for the entire family to attend.

The Ocala Recovery Fest is dedicated to the late Chief Greg Graham, whose amnesty program through the Ocala Police Department has helped hundreds of Ocala and Marion County residents fighting addiction.
