Come to Flywheel's First Ever Outdoor Block Party!

Partnering with Hilltown Families Flywheel is holding its first ever outdoor summer block party for kids at Easthampton's beautiful Millside Park, located just off the Easthampton Bike Trail.

Join families from across the region on Saturday, August 8 from 10am-12 noon for a summer celebration that features snacks, dancing, and a marionette performance. This family event is a fundraiser for both Flywheel & Hilltown Families, with a "pay what you can" admission to attend.

Following snacks, the event will feature a special engagement by the Robbins-Zust Family Marionettes. The Robbins-Zust Marionettes have been delighting audiences since 1971. They have performed classic fairy tales with their hand-crafted marionettes and live music for thousands of children of all ages... from the Dorset Playhouse in Vermont to the Grammercy Arts Theatre, the West Side Y and the City Museum in New York at fairs, schools, resorts, inns, libraries, homes, birthday parties, cabarets, stores, malls, temples, churches, and everything in between!

The Robbins-Zust Family Marionettes will be performing the classic fairytale Firebird which features giant live circus animal puppets. After the performance, kids will join DJ Youthelectronix for the “best ever dance party before noon”.
