WCCA Fall Kick-off – Saturday September 18
If you are on staff for (oh, all right, “parenting”) some littles, you must surely know of the town’s amazing Weston Community Children’s Association (WCCA). From the official page, “the Weston Community Children’s Association was founded in 1981 as a volunteer organization dedicated to fostering friendships and connections among families with young children in Weston and surrounding communities.” From the unofficial page (me), it is an organization that brings lots of fun to kids and parents alike.
This Saturday from 10 am to noon, join the WCCA for the annual fall family kick-off event at Lamson Park (also known as Disneyland Weston, according to one Town Meeting participant). Featured events are a bike parade, a Halloween costume recycling swap and a book/toy donation to Birthday Wishes foundation. It’s a chance to meet new WCCA members and visit with old friends.
This year is the first-ever bike parade. Children can decorate their bicycles, tricycles, training wheels, scooters, Big Wheels, wagons, and strollers at home in their favorite themes and colors and parade them along Town House Road in front of Town Hall. The bike parade will start promptly at 11:30 AM and will be led by by the Weston Police Department, who themselves have two police mountain bikes! I wonder how they will decorate them…
In compliance with CDC guidelines, facemasks are recommended for unvaccinated participants, and all attendees should maintain physical distancing outside their family group.
In case of rain the event will be cancelled. A quick check of the forecast looks like clouds but no rain. Come on out and have some fun!
Update 10:30 am: WCCA needs your used Halloween costumes for the swap! “The WCCA is still in need of lots of Halloween costumes for the costume swap this Saturday. You can drop off your gently used Halloween costumes that you wish to donate at the Weston Recreation Center today and tomorrow. There is a bin located in the main lobby. Or you can bring them with you to the Fall Family Kick off at Lamson Park this Saturday from 10-12.”
