The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory for the Performing Arts

ELF The Musical might just be my new favorite holiday show! The performers were amazing, the songs were so catchy (we're still singing them today), and the true meaning of Christmas rang clear throughout the entire performance. Buddy the ELF certainly captured the hearts of the audience with his Christmas cheer, hilarious antics, and undeniable charm. (And who doesn't love a show with Santa Claus!)

The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory for the Performing Arts

Opening Night of The Wizard of Oz was amazing! The kids were mesmerized by the show during the entirety of the production, and requests for more Wizard of Oz music have been made continuously following the show. Everyone in the show was incredible - even little Toto, who captured the audience's hearts! Definitely recommend seeing this show to anyone who didn't go to the opening night!

Webster Parks & Recreation Department

We had so much fun at this Trunk or Treat! Looking forward to the years to come!! Thanks to Webster Parks and Recreational Department and Webster Police Department for hosting a great event for the kids!

Oxford CommunityCenter

My 4 year old daughter loves the OCC's Summer Kids Zone Program! Its the perfect introduction to summer camp and we love that every week is a different theme. The crafts are so fun and she loves her teacher!

Crystal Caves Family Entertainment Center

Great spot to go for summer fun with the family! 18 holes of mini-golf and delicious homemade ice cream, tons of flavors to chose from! Be sure to bring your cash, as they are cash only.

Jack & Jill Preschool

Our daughter loves Jack & Jill Preschool, and so do we! The teachers and staff are wonderful, and they provide such a caring and supportive learning environment for all of the children. From the detailed lesson plans, to the field trips and adorable student programs throughout the year, it has been great to see my daughter grow and to see all of the friendships that she has made while being a student there.

Kid Power Gymnastics

My daughter and I went to a Tuesday Open Gym and had a blast! She even said, "This is the best day ever!" 45 minutes of fun for just $5 - Trampoline, balance beams, and more! Definitely recommend for the little ones!

EcoTarium

This new exhibit is so hands-on - my 4 year old daughter loves it! Watch as the kids explore and become kid-sized scientists! Lab coats, test-tubes,& experiments galore. Definitely check out Science + You while its up, its so much fun!

WOW! I had only seen a dvd version of the Riverdance in my school music class 20 years ago, but last night I saw Riverdance 20 Years at The Hanover Theatre and it was phenomenal! The flawless dancing, beautiful singing, and incredible musical pieces made every member of the audience (not an empty seat from where I could see) sit with a smile on their face. The First Act ended with a fantastic group dance leaving you thinking that they couldn't possibly do anything better than that. Somehow, the Second Act managed to be even more captivating. The entire performance was well deserving of the standing ovation it received. As I was leaving, I overheard many guests (of all ages) talking about how they now wanted to pursue Irish step dance lessons, and I can totally understand their sentiment!

Kids Zone Dental

Absolutely wonderful kids' dentist office! My three old daughter went for her first teeth cleaning this year, she was welcomed so warmly and the staff were extremely kid friendly! Aside from the wonderful staff, the office itself is pretty amazing - brightly colored rooms, tv screens on the ceilings for the kids during their appointment, an indoor playset and movie room, prizes for after their visit, to name a few of the perks. I love that we live so close and that my daughter gets excited to see her dentist. Added bonus: the Tooth Fairy visits the office and they host fabulous kid-friendly events!

Smokestack Urban Barbecue

Fantastic barbecue and great local family friendly restaurant! Great food, friendly staff, and kid friendly! We went on Tuesday and our Daughter ate for free with their Kids Eat Free on Tuesday Promotion. We will definitely be back!

EcoTarium

The EcoTarium is a fabulous place that my daughter and I love! We visit weekly with our membership pass- which is definitely worth purchasing, so I'd recommend checking it out! Between the animals exhibits, 3 floors of fun inside, the planetarium, the train rides, and the nature explorer outdoor area there is so much for the kids to do here! There are also numerous special events throughout the year - We went to the Great Pumpkin Fest this year and it was so much fun!

The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory for the Performing Arts

Absolutely beautiful theatre! Staff were all very friendly, the theatre was beautifully decorated, and there were refreshments available for purchase prior to the show. Cannot wait to see another show here! Helpful tip: Bring some cash for the parking garage across the street - it is cash only on the nights of performances at the theatre.

Sally McDermott Dance Center - Auburn

My daughter and I love the Mommy & Me class! Such a great experience - love the teachers, the class, the facility...definitely recommend checking this dancing school out!

Barnes & Noble (Millbury)

Barnes & Noble Millbury is our go-to storytime! We absolutely love the weekly stories and crafts/coloring, and the lego & train play areas! Great place to stop by with the kids, and grab a coffee or book for mom & dad! edit
