Children’s Summer Festival

With the arrival of the warm summer months comes the opportunity for parents to spend more time having fun with their kids. One great way to spend quality time as a family is by attending one of the town’s Children’s Summer Festival shows together.

In July, three exciting shows are traveling to our town parks. All three shows are free and suitable for all ages. At “Erik’s Reptile Edventure” children have the opportunity to learn about the importance of science and nature. The show offers a fun-filled educational experience that encourages kids to learn about reptiles, amphibians and bugs. For those who are looking for a good laugh and spellbinding magic, “The Magic & Comedy of Jim McClenahan” is sure to please. Finally, children will enjoy “The Tell Tale Storytellers,” which will entertain audiences with their singing and storytelling.
