The Friends of Wollaston Beach present... KidsFest!

This Saturday September 6th, fellow SHE Iris and I headed to Quincy for the Friends of Wollaston Beach KidsFest.  KidsFest is an annual public event that received support from a Better Beaches grant this year.  The stormy weather held off for the first couple hours of the well-attended event.  It was low tide on the beach, with plenty of sand space for games and activities for the crowds of kids to enjoy.  A DJ provided music and kept sack races and hula hooping contests lively.

 Iris and I brought along Larry the Lobster for a low-key touch tank.  We found some tiny crabs on the beach-- so small I wasn't sure what kind of crab they might have been.  We helped to run games and activities, and we also spread the word about the Simply Marble-ous Contest, which you can learn more about here.

The humid weather provided for a beautiful rainbow-- before the storm rolled in!

Thanks to the Friends of Wollaston Beach for orchestrating a great free event for youth and families to celebrate the end of the summer!
