A family friendly way to spend a summer morning at the Visitors Center. Play old fashioned lawn games (bean bag toss, horse shoes, nine pins, frisbee, hula hoops, etc.), jump in a bounce house, get your face painted by Heart Body Arts, and more. On hot mornings, there will be sprinklers–bring a towel. Enjoy some Dorothy Cox’s “own made” ice cream, Del’s Frozen Lemonade, and bottled water.

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 refreshments.

Bounce house and programs are sponsored in part by contributions to the Tourism Gift Account by local businesses, non-profit groups, and individuals. Donors for the 2018 season include: Evie & Rich Griffiths, Fairhaven Historical Society, Fairhaven Lions Club, Our Lady’s Haven, Fairhaven Improvement Association, Gary’s Plumbing & Heating Co.
