I just spoke with Rick Doucett, whom you all know and love from the YMCA. Rick reminded me that he and his wife, Loren, will be running Kids Town at the Block Party on Saturday (just like last year). Kid’s Town is between Pleasant St. & Hancock St. near the Sovereign Stage (see map here).
Balloons, face painting, giant chess and more. Every year kids connect with friends at the Block Party that they haven’t seen in a while (just like adults do). How many things can you do that are just as much fun for your kids as they are for you?
Speaking of kids, don’t forget Y summer camp is in full swing (see here).
Don’t forget that the Orleans concert on Aug 31 — featuring Gloucester’s own Fly Amero along with Rhode Island’s John Cafferty of the Beaver Brown band and Eddie and the Cruisers movie will help raise money for the North Shore YMCA Summer Camp program.
You and your kids can see Allen Estes at the Block Party on Saturday at the Sargent Stage.
And if we’re lucky, we may also get to hear Fly sing with his sister at the Franklin Stage.
