Join the Farnsworth Art Museum for our annual Fall Family Festival on Saturday, October 19, from 2 to 5 p.m. in the museum sculpture garden. There will be free-style pumpkin carving, facepainting, crafts, live music by The Rusty Hinges, and refreshments provided by Home Kitchen Café. Families will be able to have their pictures taken with life-size cut outs of the Wizard of Oz characters and will be able to watch It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown showing in the museum auditorium. A parade will take place on Main Street, departing from the sculpture garden at 5:30 p.m. Families are invited to participate in the parade by wearing costumes and masks. Some masks will be made available thanks to Shoe String Theatre, who will be teaching an after school workshop the week leading up to the festival & parade.
Grab a noisemaker, borrow a mask, and join in the fun! At the close of the parade, the group will return to the sculpture garden where the pumpkin lighting will take place at sunset, at approximately 6 p.m. In case of rain, activities will take place in the Gamble Education Center, located at the corner of Grace and Union Streets. Please call 207-596-0949 with any questions or see farnsworthmuseum.org/children-family-programs.
