Old Home Day Bounces Along into Kidz Night

Aug 14, 2018 No Comments by

What has multiple personalities, wide eyes, red noses, and big ears? What is bouncy, giggly, sticky, and messy, but so much fun? Londonderry’s Old Home Day Kidz Night, of course! As the second night of festivities in this town tradition, its sure to make the kids smile. An event that’s brought more than 2,000 people in the past, this year’s surely won’t disappoint!

Thursday night, August 16, 2018, the kids will be popping around Fun Bounce’s bounce houses like the Wildcats  popcorn and ice cream will be licked and scooped as all eyes are fixated on the shows taking place on the Bandstand. Faces will be painted like Spiderman, Batman, butterflies and flowers as little hands pet new and exciting animals.

The Lions will be cooking hot dogs, burgers and other delicious barbecue treats while clowns make balloon animals of all sizes. The Roaming Railroad will be back for it’s second year, but be sure the kids don’t jump from the moving train to chase their favorite cartoon characters.

Londonderry’s PTAs will be hosting games, competitions, and more games! Last year’s ring toss threatened to send second and third graders back to Moose Hill, and a local child care center offered an interesting green goo for the children to play and sculpt with.

All the fun starts at 5:30 PM at the Town Common. With a few sad faces, Kidz Night will end at 8 PM. In the event of rain, the night will be moved to the Londonderry High School Gym. Activities are best suited for children under 10 years of age.

Participants include:

  • Londonderry Drumline
  • Fun Bounce
  • Roaming Raceway and Railroad
  • Special Characters
  • Wildlife Encounters
  • Bektash Clowns
  • Hot Air Balloon Rides
