FREE FUN! Children’s Day in Portsmouth held Sunday, May 5!

It’s Children’s Day again! Visit downtown Portsmouth on Sunday, May 6, 2018 for an afternoon of family fun! What’s happening?

Each year on the first Sunday of May, Downtown Portsmouth becomes headquarters for children of all ages with the celebration of Children’s Day. An estimated 10,000+ “children” visit Portsmouth to take part in an afternoon of fun on the Seacoast.

This Festival combines family-friendly activities, entertainment and usually, an ice cream sundae – all sponsored, hosted and supported by the Downtown Merchants, area companies, civic organizations and volunteers of the Seacoast. From a Hoola Hoop Contest to a “photo – op” with a favorite friend from Character Island, the day is filled with something for everyone.

How does it work? Pro Portsmouth creates a map and kids of all ages follow the alphabet ’round town. From A to Z, they can visit shops and restaurants, head to the Block Party on Pleasant and enjoy all sorts of fun activities and entertainment. Download the festival map and see what activities are going on below.
