What is your favorite thing to do in Fulton?

My favorite thing to do in Fulton is bowling with my friends!

What is the best LEAD event you’ve ever been to?

The best lead even that I have ever been to would have to be The Chicago Boyz. They are an acrobatic team that do crazy stunts on stage! It was so fun to watch and it was something that everyone enjoyed. You could feel an amazing energy in the room.
