Nichole’s Picks 3/4 + 3/5
Pick #1: Cultural Festival at Harborlight in Beverly
I am pretty excited about this event. First of all, it is free. A suggested donation of $10 per family would be appreciated, but is not necessary.
Children will be given a “passport” to go on tour through several different countries (classrooms). Along the way, they will make crafts and be introduced to a bit of the cultural that makes each country special. At 11:15 all guests will be invited upstairs to watch the live entertainment. There will be a Lion Dance troupe and a group named Ballet Folklorico Colombiano Bajucol who will perform three separate cultural dances. Harborlight students will also sing some songs that they have learned in Mandarin and Spanish…along with American Sign Language. Baked goods will also be available for purchase.
Pick #2: Sugar Shack Saturdays at Appleton Farms
Saturdays, March 4, 2017 10am-11:30am & 1:30-3pm
Spring is coming and the sap is running! Experience the time-honored tradition of maple sugaring with Sugar Shack Saturdays at Appleton Farms. Spend the morning with us and see how we turn sap into sweet syrup. Start by getting creative with some maple themed crafts in the Appleton Old House then get outside and explore our very own sugar shack! Learn how we tap our trees every spring, see the evaporator in action, and taste the freshly made syrup. We will end back inside with a farm snack, including Appleton Farms cheese, apple slices, and homemade maple ice cream while we read a story about maple sugaring!
Recommended for ages 8 and under but everyone is welcome! Space is limited. Registration is by the family- if you have 5 or more in your family, please register 2 families. Crafts and snacks included and we want to have enough for all.
