MANCHESTER, NH – TD Bank and Intown Manchester are proud to present the 3rd Annual TD Bank Family Fest this Saturday, August 22 from 10 a.m. until 1:15 p.m. at Veterans Park in Downtown Manchester. The theme for the 2015 Family Fest is “Where the Wild Things Are,” inspired by the children’s book by Maurice Sendak.

Family Fest brings music, live performances, activities, crafts, and healthy snacks to Manchester families, completely free of charge. There will be more than 20 tables, each sponsored by local businesses, non-profits, and organizations providing all types of fun for the whole family. Dimensions in Dance will be performing a special version of “Where the Wild Things Are” and Ben Rudnick and Friends will be live on the stage as well performing their well-known kid-friendly songs. Children and their families are encouraged to show up dressed as their favorite wild thing.

“We are so excited to present our Third-Annual Family Fest this Saturday,” said Sara Beaudry, Executive Director of Intown Manchester. “Family Fest aims to provide a completely free, fun-filled day for families without having to travel far from home. With the school year starting in just a few short weeks, this event is the perfect chance to get in some last-minute summer fun — for free!”
