New Year’s Day Morning Music Party with Hilltown Families & Flywheel Arts Collective

On the first day of 2018, Hilltown Families and the Flywheel Arts Collective are continuing the beloved ‘Saturday Morning Dance Party’ series for another year with a breakfast bash featuring food, dancing, and diversions for kids!  This year we are starting off this family series on New Year’s Day, January 1, with a morning music party on from 10am-12noon in Easthampton, MA.

During a free breakfast of fresh pancakes, juice, and fruit, families can enjoy a performance with our special guest, Scotty Swan Puppet Co. There will be plenty of food to go around – and you’ll need it to fuel your moves for what some have called the “best ever dance party before noon!” DJ Youthelectronix will be on the ones and twos, spinning your favorite hits! Save on the babysitter and dance away the first morning of the new year!

These Morning Music Parties are a fundraiser for both Flywheel & Hilltown Families, with a “pay what you can” admission to attend with your family. So much cheaper than a night out on the town and just as much fun! Read the rest of this entry »
