On Saturday, October 17, the Farnsworth Art Museum invites everyone to attend its fifth annual Fall Family Festival. The festival will take place from 3 to 6 p.m. in the museum’s sculpture garden, and is free of charge.
All are invited to the Farnsworth Art Museum’s sculpture garden as it will be transformed into the Fall Family Festival grounds. There will be free-style pumpkin carving, face painting, crafts, and live music. The Uproot Pizza company will be on hand for those longing for a warm, tasty meal.
Beginning at 5:30 p.m., a parade will take place on Main Street, departing from the sculpture garden. Families are invited to participate in the parade by wearing costumes and masks. Some masks will be made available thanks to Shoestring Theater, which will be teaching a week-long free workshop in the days leading up to the festival and parade. Grab a noisemaker, borrow a mask, and join in the fun! Immediately following the parade, the group will return to the sculpture garden for the lighting of the pumpkins.
In case of rain, activities will take place in the Gamble Education Center, located at the corner of Grace and Union Streets. For more information, please call the museum’s Education department at (207) 596-0949.
