Burlington County Parks
Burlington County Board of Chosen Freeholders is sponsoring several free family events through the Division of Parks this Fall. Feel free to let families in your district know that they are invited to Historic Smithville Park in Eastampton for these festivities.
October 6, 9am-4pm – FALL FLOAT FESTIVAL, A free festival where families can paddle a canoe/kayak on the Rancocas Creek and then return to Smithville Park for food, entertainment and activities for all ages. This year’s event features ‘Carve Wars’. Several skilled craftsmen will be making masterpieces from a log using a chainsaw. Live auction for these pieces will take place at 2pm.
The entire month of October Smithville will host the Scarecrows on Parade contest. If your education association, or home school association would like to contribute a scarecrow to this contest, it would be a great community project to show school pride.
December 8th, 1pm-5pm – VICTORIAN HOLIDAY, Santa arrives at Smithville Park at 2pm by horse drawn carriage. Choirs will sing some of your favorite holiday tunes. But beware, the Grinch may be roaming the festival to try and steal your holiday spirit! Skate on our iceless skating rink while the DJ spins your favorite holiday tunes and plays games. Make an ornament to take home or to hang on the Smithville Christmas Tree which will be ceremoniously lit at 5pm.
Hope to see you out at the Parks soon! For a full listing of all parks activities, feel free to check out the Parks Program Guide.
