On February 20, 2017, 4,500 people flocked to the 11th annual State Theatre New Jersey Family Day on Presidents Day. With a full day of activities spanning three venues, downtown New Brunswick was a alive with the sights and sounds of kids and their families having a great time.
Along with performances of Lightwire Theater’s delightful Moon Mouse: A Space Odyssey at the State Theatre, there were performances at Crossroads Theatre by children’s rock icon mr. Ray and by the nimble-footed New Jersey Tap Dance Ensemble, plus a ground-shaking community drum circle. Across the street at the United Methodist Church, the Philadelphia Zoo returned with their wildly popular “Who’s Who at the Zoo.” Kids had hands-on fun with crafts, games, dance and theater workshops, a photo booth, and the New Brunswick Fire Department’s gleaming red engine. Among the other delights were balloon animals, face painting, an ice sculpting demonstration, and costumed characters.
Nearly all of these amazing activities were free of charge, thanks in part to the generous sponsorship of Horizon Foundation for New Jersey with additional support by Investors Bank.
