Smiles for Sophia – Burncoat’s Second Annual Fall Festival. 11am-3pm at Burncoat High School.
Admission is $5 for all ages and 100% of the proceeds benefit The Sophia Fund. The event will be held rain or shine.
The festival is geared towards children ages 2 to 12 and features pony rides, entertainment, arts & crafts, jumpies, games, food and prizes. A ¼ mile Harvest Fun Run will be held at 1:30 pm. Children are encouraged to wear costumes for the run, and prizes for the most creative costume will be awarded.
The event is held in honor of Sophia Kuczarski, a Burncoat resident who lost her battle with leukemia in 2012 at the age of four. Lauren Angers, a neighbor of Sophia’s and an event organizer says “Sophia had a loving personality and contagious smile that is missed by everyone who knew her. She was a spunky and brave little girl who loved nothing more than playing and having fun.” This event seeks to honor Sophia’s memory in a playful and fun manner while also raising funds to support families with childhood.
Sundae Sunday, a celebration about Sunday openings at the Worcester Public Library; 1:30pm. There will be ice cream and balloon animals. I shouldn’t have to say anything more!
