WHAT: Winterthur’s Enchanted Summer Day
WHEN: Saturday, June 16, 11:00 am–3:00 pm
WHERE: Winterthur’s Enchanted Woods, 5105 Kennett Pike, Winterthur, Delaware
Fairy princesses, enchanted woodsmen, and all magical beings are invited to run, skip, and play at Winterthur’s Enchanted Summer Day on Saturday, June 16 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. Enjoy a full day of crafts, games, and face-painting as the Celtic tunes of roving musicians fill the air. Craft a silly crown while you marvel at a magician’s amazing sleight of hand. Create magic wands and magnificent mice at the arts and crafts table, and savor delicious ice cream from Woodside Farm Creamery. Dance around the Maypole, or learn how to pot a basil plant in the fantastical surroundings of this special children’s garden.
Families are also invited to explore the museum on the Once Upon a Family Tour or in Winterthur’s Touch-It Room. Capture your favorite moments from the day with a digital camera and enter your photos into the Enchanted Summer Day photo contest. The winner will receive a family membership (or renewal) to Winterthur—good for a whole year. This is a rain-or-shine event; if raindrops threaten, the magic moves inside. Most Enchanted Summer Day activities are included in Winterthur’s regular admission. For more information about the event, visit http://www.winterthur.org/enchantedsummerday.
