There’s plenty to do this spring weekend across the state, including kid-friendly activities, fundraisers and festivals, some of which are making a comeback since the pandemic began.
Compounce Lake Amusement Park in Bristol kicked off their season today. In light of its 175th anniversary season, the park is launching its new program: Kids Fest.
Children from 2 to 8 years old will be able to interact with jugglers, stilt walkers and DJs. There will also be character encounters with Arthur and Pete the Cat every weekend from April to May.
“They can have a balloon twister, a cute crafted balloon, a wader, a juggler, and nostalgic kid foods like macaroni and cheese, smiley fries, and kid’s sundaes, all those sweet treats,” Lynsey Winters said. , Marketing Director at Lake Composé.
This year, the park will also go cashless. Winters said there will be card payment kiosks for guests.
“It’s easier for our team members and even our guests not to have to worry about having cash on them. So just bring your cards and season ticket and you’re good to go,” Winters said.
Lake Compounce is the oldest operating amusement park in North America.
The park is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. all weekend.
