Once again, the event will feature David Grover and the Big Bear Band as entertainment, as well roving performer Trevor the Games Man.

Backpacks will be distributed to the children along with healthy snacks of fruit, raisins, pretzels, juice and water. Families are encouraged to pack a lunch and picnic on the lawn. There will also be raffles and other giveaways. Admission is free.

This year’s participants include: AMR Ambulance, Berkshire Children & Families, Berkshire County Head Start, Berkshire Music School, Brien Center, Child care of the Berkshires, Dr. Michael Fabrizio, Even Start, Kid Zone, Operation Better Start, Pediatric Development Center, Pittsfield CPC, Pittsfield Police & Fire, Pittsfield YMCA, Pittsfield Public Schools Safe Schools Healthy Student Initiative, Resources for Child Care, Safe Kids/Kid Care ID program, Tot Spot and WIC.
