The Friends of Christopher Columbus Park once again put on a family fun day to celebrate Independence Day at the park. This year’s festivities were held on Saturday, June 25th.
The free celebration was kicked off by the fun “Kids Parade,” led by Uncle Sam on stilts. Other entertainment throughout the day included visits by Rosalita the Puppeteer, Daniel the Tiger, Station 8’s Fire Truck, the New England Aquarium’s Touch Tank and Magician Peter O’Malley!
Ann Babbitt, chair of the event and vice president of FOCCP cheered, “This is a particularly exciting event as we celebrate FOCCP’s 15th anniversary this year.
Raising the bar each year, FOCCP worked with Wow Balloons to form a huge American flag that waved in the center of the park. Check out upcoming FOCCP events at the park, including their 15th Anniversary bash on August 23rd, at www.FOCCP.org.
