Earth Day Family Fun Friday

WHERE: Blithewold Manison, Gardens and Arboretum

Kick-off another exciting season of Family Fun Fridays at Blithewold’s Earth Day Celebration AND Birthday Party for our very own giant sequoia. This beautiful tree, most commonly seen on the West Coast of the United States, is a rare gem -- help us to celebrate its 100th Birthday. There’s no better day to hug a tree than on Earth Day!

A special performance will take place from 11 a.m. - 12 p.m., followed by birthday cake, a craft activity, a community mural painting and fun! Leo’s Ristaurante will be selling slices of pizza, and as always, picnics, chairs & picnic blankets are welcome!

Free with regular Mansion admission.
