Combat the Dog Days of August with Fun, Games and Lots of Water on Snug Harbor’s Scenic South Meadow

Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden is proud to present its third annual outdoor event, Sprinklerfest 2013. This unique outdoor event is held on the four-acre South Meadow of the Snug Harbor Campus. It is scheduled for Friday, August 9 from 1 to 5 p.m.  In the event of rain, the event will take place the following Friday, August 16th. As in the past, the festivities will feature dozens of open sprinklers for kids of all ages to run, jump and skip through, plus a dunk tank for dunking Snug Harbor staffers. Admission to this event is free.

New entertainment this year includes live music by Staten Island’s own teen cover band Radio Active who will play at 2 p.m. and surprise guest performers.  Farmer Gus will conduct tours of the Heritage Farm and fresh produce will be on sale at the Heritage Farm Stand. Popcorn, cotton candy and food from a number of vendors also will be available for purchase. Other activities will include a children’s workshop presented by Snug Harbor Artist Residence Program (SHARP) artist Laura Murray on how to make friendly bug creatures from pipe cleaners. Children should wear washable play clothes or swimwear. Some seating will be provided, but accompanying adults are encouraged to bring beach chairs, umbrellas, and towels. A cooling center will be set up in Building P adjacent to the South Meadow for sporadic relief from the sun. Follow us on www.snug-harbor.org
