If you’re looking for some good things to do this weekend, here are some big Events.
Saturday, April 28th is University of Delaware’s Ag Day in Newark, Delaware. It is 10am-4pm and has a lot of family fun activities to participate in. The food is good and you’ll be supporting different groups at UD, there are animals for the kids to see, good music to hear, lots of activities. Parking is free and the kids activities (like face painting and pony rides) are not that expensive. There are also a lot of plants to purchase to beautify your garden and support the University of Delaware Agricultural Program.
If you’re not interested in Ag Day, head over to Hagley Museum for NatureFest from 10am-3pm. Cost is $3 per nonmember, children under 5 are free. They will have hands on craft activities, nature walks, tree climbing, etc. I know I’ve said this before but I always have a great time at Hagley.
Sunday, April 29th is the 8th Annual Wildflower Celebration at Mt. Cuba Horticultural Institution in Hockessin, Delaware from 10am -4pm. Parking and admission is free on this day, the only day of the year that they have free admission. The first 100 families will also get a free potted wildflower to take home. They also have what they’re calling “a family friendly adventure” about the journey from caterpillar to butterfly through different learning stations. I have never been to Mt. Cuba but I love visiting Longwood Gardens so I’m interested in checking this out, and saving $15 dollars since we won’t have to pay the $5 per ticket.
If you’re interested in Baseball, make sure to check out the Wilmington Blue Rocks on Fridays (Including this Friday, April 27) for baseball and Fireworks. They put on a great family game and fantastic Fireworks display every time.
Saturday, May 5th the Home Depot has their Kids Workshop from 9am- 12 pm where the kids will be building their own planter boxes. I definitely want to make it to that one because LittleM is all about building and growing plants right now. Check your local Home Depot for availability of this project.
Happy Hunting for Adventure!
