Miller River Park is Blossoming

Big thanks to (nearly birthday girl) TK for her, as always, excellent guest blog post.  She mentioned that Mill River was in bloom, and I was so excited to see today that she's absolutley right.  So without further ado, here goes:

Spring is in the air and the cherry trees in Mill River Park are starting to bloom. The Park’s grand opening is the first weekend in May, and it’s actually starting to look like a real park.  

On Friday, May 3, Mill River is launching its Spielberg at Sunset outdoor movie series, in partnership with the Avon Theatre. Movies include Raiders of the Lost Ark, ET, Goonies and more. There will be a DJ starting at 6:30pm, and the movie will begin at sunset. If we could get a food truck or two to show up, that would be ideal. El Charrito? Melt Mobile?

On Saturday, May 4, the Swingset Mamas will be performing at Mill River Playground, there will be zumba and yoga drop-ins in the park, bird walks, a performance of the “Rejuvenary River Circus,” and more.

It looks like the Fun Saturday Mornings performances at the Mill River playground will continue this summer, but the lineup has not been released yet. We saw “Boogie Chillun” at the playground last summer, and we were ready to book them for our next private event.
SN again: it sounds fabulous, and we'll be there with bells on ourselves!
