Bring the whole family, there’s something for everyone! Come enjoy a celebration of the arts: activities for adults and kids, games and prizes, an arts & crafts fair, live music, and plenty of local food. Take advantage of special studio sales and retail discounts.

Don’t miss the REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE! show put together by Jamie, owner of LoveBugs, the fabulous new secondhand kids’ store at the village. There will be three showings of this live performance for kids, grown-ups, and dogs (or any other pet you happen to bring along).

Craziness ensues as Bling learns that it’s not all about money, spending, and consuming. He learns valuable lessons about the environment and how to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Featuring the music of Jack Johnson, the hip-hop clown antics of RODRIGO, juggling and flipping by Jamie, general foolery by Liz, and street drumming by Evan, this show is sure to inform and entertain. LoveBugs will also have balloons, snacks, and face painting for the kids. Come on! It’ll be hot out and you need something to do on Saturday!
Showtimes: Noon, 1:00 pm, and 3:00 pm. The show runs approximately fifteen minutes and is appropriate for all ages.

    Love Bugs has relocated to Hope Street in Providence, a few shops from Creatoyvity on the corner of Rochambeau.

    Is Love Bugs now where Small Change used to be? Good for Jamie! Although the other location was nice too.

    Love Bugs is actually in between Claudia Curl and The Blue Cottage Bakery. Now moms can visit the library, a toy store, shop for second hand kids’ clothes and have breakfast or lunch – ALL in one block.
