Essex County Family Day- CANCELED

Thu Apr 18, 2019
11:00am to 3:00pm ET
All ages

Stop by the renovated and landscaped concert grove to enjoy an afternoon outdoors with your family. Test out your hula hooping, work out in our paddle boats, construct a craft, get your face painted, our grab food from one of many food vendors.

Other family activities include a fishing derby that runs from 12:00 to 2pm.

The Branch Brook Park's recently remodeled playground is adjacent to all the fun, so kids can enjoy the slides and swings, too.

The Family Day is part of the monthlong Essex County Cherry Blossom Festival. Also check out the Bloomfest happening at the same location the following day with plenty of live music and other demonstrations.
