Event Details

Travel through time with Fred Finch Youth Center in celebration of their 125th year of providing services for children and families.

As you stroll through the 8 acre park-like campus you can enjoy a fun-filled day carnival with clowns, stilt walkers, games and face painting. Plus snack on sno-cones, popcorn, cotton candy and hot dogs – all on the house.

Event Highlights:

  • Listen to live music while interacting with clowns and stilt walkers. Get your face painted or pose for an old-fashioned photograph. Win prizes as you test your strength or play a game of ring toss at an 1890s carnival.
  • Grab a bag of popcorn and let their 1930s movie ushers seat you for a classic motion picture written by the most famous resident, William Saroyan. Choose from The Best Years of Our Lives starring James Cagney or The Human Comedy starring Mickey Rooney. Prefer something shorter? Enjoy a classic episode of Rin-Tin-Tin whose owner and trainer also resided at Fred Finch Children’s Home.
  • Take a tour of Avalon School and leave a message on their giant chalkboard or add your artwork to our bulletin board. Leave the classroom for a 1950s style recess complete with HulaHoops, jump rope and a Rock Around the Clock cake walk.
  • Learn about the great work that continues at Fred Finch Youth Center with a multi-media presentation and exhibit and stop by our newest program, the Rising Harte Wellness Center for a little stress relief.

Please note, this event ends at 3 pm, not 3 am was listed previously.
