Although most towns had some sort of event going on this weekend, it is a pretty normal situation in our town. Sure we pay a little bit higher tax than some and we also pay a borough tax among some other taxes that others don’t pay – but it is a rare occasion to not have a family or kid event in our town on a weekend. And almost all things at these events are free. Todays event was Kids Day. It involved “Touch a Truck”, face painting, balloon animals, BMX/Skateboard shows, juggling shows, musicians, multiple types of crafts and painting stations, free chips (courtesy of FritoLay), free Slush Puppies (courtesy of Sunnyside Farms), moon bouncing, hay rides, kids exercise stations (courtesy of Muscle Max gym) – and unfotunately I am sure that is not all they had planned but when it started thundering and lightning that was pretty much the end of that fun. But that didn’t start til about 45 minutes before the fun was coming to an end anyway. Here are some random photos from the event.
No – she isn’t crying but her hair kept blowing in her face and she couldn’t easily remove it because she had paint on her fingers.
