But what to do with the children?! Oh, the children!
With a field full of activities for the kids, you’re sure to please the whole family!
Let the kids burn off their summer energy by jumping in the bounce house, sliding down the giant inflatable slide, and since you’ll be at Cheshire Elementary School…there’s an ENTIRE playground smack in the middle of the festival!
There will also be Bowie the clown face painting, craft stations, with energetic DJ Mark Santella MC'ing it all.
When the kids start to tucker out, or when you need a "cool down", bring them to a reading of “A Big Cheese for the White House” – the true story of the giant cheese made by the town of Cheshire for President Thomas Jefferson.
General admission for adults and kids is $5/person with kids under 5 Free. With a whole afternoon of fun at that price, you won't even have to choose which kid to leave at home!
