Family Fun at the Fishing Heritage Center
August 11 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The Center will be open free of charge on AHA! Night, plus kids can come to make an instrument from 5:30–7 p.m. and join in a Foo Foo Band led by Jeff Angeley from 7–8 p.m. Foo foo bands were impromptu 19th-century bands made of a fishing vessel’s crew.
There’ll be lots in the parking lot, sponsored by the Massachusetts Health Connector in partnership with the Center, Fishing Partnership, and PACE. Games, a DJ spinning family-friendly tunes, balloon animals, a bubble show, and partner booths have something for everyone.
