Why Go?: Three generations of an Armenian-American family yell, dance, carry food around, play tambourines, rollerblade, cry, scream, laugh, and support each other. When daughter Ani, 21, travels to Armenia, she learns more of her history and troubled heritage. When she returns, she learns much from her recently widowed grandmother, Non, who teaches her how to incorporate this new knowledge into her life. In doing so, Ani empowers her mother, who embarks on her own pilgrimage to the homeland. These are kind-hearted people, embracing life even as they discover their historical tragedies.

Why Go?: Come see some of your children’s favorite trucks and animals and make a difference in the lives of children in need at the same time! What better way to teach your children the importance of giving back to the community than at an event that's set up just for them? Once again, the event will feature a wide range of trucks and vehicles from kids and adults of all ages to explore. Last year's favorites were the Hummer limousine, RV fit for a rock star, Natick Bookmobile, and a mini excavator that children could operate. This year, we've added the Rocky Acres Farm petting zoo with over twenty different animals for children to pet, hold, and feed. Family Music Makers will also be at the event to get the kids singing and dancing while they enjoy their special day!
