About 10 month(s) ago by MediaConnect Do you love family fun? Then mark your calendars for the annual Arbor Day Family Festival at Plantings Field Arboretum State Historic Park. Celebrate spring with a wide variety of hands-on activities and workshops that kids and adults of all ages will love. It all takes place on the weekend of April 23 & 24.
Take your kids to the petting zoo to meet cute animals or visit the arts and crafts tent to make something to bring home. There will be plenty of live entertainment all weekend long including concerts and the famous circus show that will thrill the little ones. Another highlight will be on-site tree climbing activities for kids. They can test their tree climbing skills in a safe environment while parents take the perfect photo for their memories. Cap off the day with a special tree planting ceremony with Smokey The Bear.
Admission to the festival is $20 per vehicle. You pay at the park entrance, and after that initial fee, all of the Arbor Day Family Festival activities are free of charge. Plantings Field Arboretum State Historic Park is only about 20 minutes by car from our boutique hotel on Long Island. You can stay the whole weekend at our hotel and go to the festival on both days. Make your plans for the perfect family vacation this spring!
