It’s a Meltdown! Family Festival of Music, Books & More!
The River’s Family Music Meltdown & Book Bash!
Saturday, March 30th, 2013 • 10am-4pm
Smith Vocational School • Northampton, MA
Great family music. Nationally known authors reading from – and signing – their books. A circus. A bounce house. And baby animals! — If these are the kinds of things that will blow your kids’ minds, then you need to bring them to Meltdown: the River’s Family Music and Book Fest, this Saturday, March 30th from 10am-4pm at their new location, Smith Vocational and Agricultural High School in Northampton, MA!
Families can meet author Jarrett J. Krosoczka, and get the latest book in his Lunch Lady series weeks before it’s in stores… Or rock out to Brooklyn’s own Deedle Deedle Dees… Or check out the Hampshire Gymnastics demos and bounce in the bounce house. It’s like Woodstock for kids – without the yucky parts!
There will be three stages filled with music, authors and puppet shows. A food court featuring healthy food and great treats from local vendors. Arts and crafts, vendors, magic and more.
The line-up of musicians include Hey Dango, Mister G, Deedle Deedle Dees, Sandra Velasquez, Kira Willey, RhymeZweLL, The Nields, Jay Mankita, Tom and Laurie, Daniel Hales and the frost heaves and Mariana Iranzi. There will also be incredible children’s book authors, curated by local heroes Gina and Jarrett (“Lunch Lady”) Krosoczka, including, Angela DiTerlizzi, Matt McElligott, Judy Schachner & Tony DiTerlizzi.
The Meltdown is in a new location with plenty of parking – Smith Vocational and Agricultural High School, 80 Locust Street (Route 9), in Northampton, right next to Cooley Dickinson Hospital. Admission is free! All the details are at www.rivermeltdown.com.
