The Children’s Festival is held the first weekend of February vacation at Mt. Blue High School. This free family event helps to relieve cabin fever with music, magic, movement, hands on activities and a low cost food court. The festival is fun for all ages!
This annual event has become so popular that there are now 2 dances on the same night from 6:00-9:00pm, one in Jay and one in Strong. We will have dancing, DJ, refreshments, a photographer and prizes at both locations. Tickets available for the dance at Calico Patch, Flower Barn, White Elephant, and Edmunds Market for $12 in advance. Tickets available at the door for $15. One ticket covers a father and all of his daughters.
This event raises awareness of the effects of child abuse while promoting positive family interactions. This month highlights the partnership between law enforcement, the State of Maine and the local Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Councils. Here in Franklin County a free Pancake Breakfast is provided for families at the Homestead Bakery and is hosted by the FCCTF and the Farmington Rotary.
