Winthrop Parks and Recreation Director Sean Driscoll has a free, blockbuster event planned for all Winthrop residents Saturday (May 20, 11 a.m. â€“ 3 p.m.) at Ingleside Park.
Driscoll and his staff will host the second annual Spring Fair, with many activities planned for children and families.
â€œWe held it last year for the first time after COVID, and the response was tremendous, so weâ€™re excited about Year 2,â€ said Driscoll.
The event is being held in collaboration with the Bike Winthrop group, who will lead a Bike Ride beginning at 1 p.m. Other bicycle-related activities include a bike rodeo and safety course for children and safety tips and helmets courtesy of the Winthrop Police Department.
Lantern Real Estate will be holding a free raffle for a brand-new bicycle.
Driscoll said children will be able to participate in activities such as bouncing, inflatable structures and pony rides.
â€œWeâ€™ll also have 30 vendors at different tables and musical entertainment, and our guests can enjoy hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza, popcorn, and soft drinks,â€ related Driscoll. â€œHarbor City Church will be distributing cotton candy. Itâ€™s going to be a great day as long as the weather cooperates â€“ the temperature is supposed to be around 70 [degrees].â€
