On hot mornings, there will be sprinklers–bring a towel. Expect a visit from Buttons the Bear from Carousel Family Fun Center. Enjoy some ice cream from Acushnet Creamery.
At 10:00 each week, enjoy a special guest program geared toward children ages 5 through 12 and their parents and guardians. Admission, games, bounce house, and programs are free. There is a charge for face painting and the ice cream and water.
