The 16th annual Darien Family Fun Day, hosted by the Holly Pond School, will be held from 12 to 3 on Sunday, Oct. 21, at the Darien YMCA.
In celebration of Holly Pond’s state-of-the-art new school facilities, this year’s Family Fun Day will be bigger and better than ever. This fun-filled family event is open to the public and is designed for pre-school and elementary school age children. Tickets cost $25 per family, and all proceeds will benefit the Holly Pond School.
Family Fun Day, the Holly Pond School’s largest fundraiser of the year, will feature pony rides, musical entertainment by the Bossy Frog Band, two magic shows performed by Amazing Andy, a bouncy castle and obstacle course, games, crafts, bake sale and a silent auction. Food and beverages will be available at the event. All crafts and activities are organized and staffed by Holly Pond School parents. Activities include face painting, mini pumpkin decorating, potato sack races, beading, mask making, bowling and visiting with the Sound Tigers mascot.
Holly Pond School students and parents will also create themed gift baskets for the silent auction which will be held during Family Fun Day. The fabulous baskets will be on display in the front lobby of the newly renovated Darien YMCA; bidding will begin on Oct. 15.
This year’s basket themes will be designed to appeal to a wide variety of age ranges. Basket highlights include a wooden dollhouse, sports/bounce (with trampoline), Legos, American Girl dolls, Strawberry Shortcake bike, beauty and fashion for tweens, as well as birthday parties, date night, tickets to The View, Rachel Ray and Live with Kelly & Mike, and activities for dad.
