Family FunFest is Kid Stuff magazine’s annual family event. It’s about families and fun, education and entertainment, local businesses and nonprofits, games and goodies — a day of memory making right here in your Upper Valley community.

Although Family FunFest is a kid-centered festival, adults have plenty of reasons to love FunFest, too. Parents will learn about camp opportunities, meet Upper Valley tutors and educators, find deals on clothing, learn about birthday party places, and get information from local nonprofit organizations. Door prizes — appealing to the whole family— will be given away during the event. Planned activities include storytelling, obstacle course, pony rides, face paintings, arts and crafts projects, and more!

If you’d like to sponsor or be a vendor at this fun new event, please call the Kid Stuff magazine home base at (603) 863-7048.


Zing into Spring!

The sun is peeking through the clouds today. Yes, finally. And it reminded me that spring was supposed to be here a month ago – right around the time Kearsarge Magazine held its first Zing into Spring event. It was a true success – 40 happy vendors and 150 happy participants. Event manager Leigh Ann Root took these candid photos, and I was thrilled to see everyone smiling and enjoying the day – acupuncture, belly dancing, fitness drumming, yoga, live music with Folk Fusion, food, hand massages, reiki, tarot card readings, shopping and learning. We’ve already picked a date for 2016, so mark your calendars to Zing into Spring on Saturday, March 19!
