Family friendly live music, art projects, bike rodeo — and a chance to win an ‘All Around Kennett’ gift basket
A variety of participatory art activities are planned for Saturday, July 30, from 10 am to 3 pm at Anson B. Nixon Park’s Family Art Fest.
The event offers many interactive art activities for children. Take-away projects include mosaics, origami, abstract painting and rug weaving. To round out the fun, face painting, photography, and story-telling in a fairy story garden are planned.
The Family Art Fest also includes music and dance performances from the Junk Rock Recycle Band, Danza Tenochtli, the Longwood Performing Arts Center, the Carousel Performing Arts Center, and special surprise guests.
A bike rodeo by Kennett Square Dr. Ray McLaughlin of Kennett Square is also planned for the ArtFest. All kids who bring their bicycles and helmets along to the Art Fest can get a bike safety check up and decorate their bikes with colorful streamers. Dr. McLaughlin will demonstrate minor bicycle repairs and share safe bicycling rules throughout the day. Some demonstration bikes will be available for those without bikes.
Those signing up for The Unionville Times’ weekly e-newsletter will be automatically entered to win a drawing for a special gift basket, featuring items from:
