Every week on GoLocalProv I share tips on how families can make the most of their family time — including helpful hints that make parenting easier and connecting you to great local happenings.
Kido Tip 1. Pumpkin Perfect.
Do you have a favorite place to pick your perfect pumpkin? And is it oval or round? I love simple seasonal traditions with my kids like revisiting the same place year after year to pick our pumpkins or to go apple picking. It’s comforting. We have have gone to Four Town Farm every year since my boys were babies. Not to say it’s the best place but it’s become our tradition to go every October to ride the tractor to the pumpkin field and come back with our version of the perfect pumpkin.
Kido Tip 2. Make Street Art.
Get inspired at The Street Painting Festival this Saturday, October 2nd from noon to 5. Artists—young and old, amateur and professional—create imaginative chalk drawings on the ground of the Bank of America Skating Center & Biltmore Park. Artist will be drawing all day. Come early to watch the planning, hang out all day to watch the process or head over at the end of the day when the artists are finishing up their masterpieces. This is an all ages free event. Sample foods from some of the area’s best restaurants. Check out an extensive display of classic cars. Enjoy live 50s and 60s music.
Beyond: Splurge on a new box of street chalk (found cheap at Job Lot) and make your own family art in your driveway or pavement at a local park.
