This weekend bring the whole family to Marshfield for the North River Arts Society’s 38th annual Festival of the Arts, taking place around the GAR Hall on Old Main Street in Marshfield Hills Saturday and Sunday from 10am-5pm.  A special tent with free kids’ activities will be set up across the street from the GAR Hall. These are activities planned by kids, for kids. Kids will have the opportunity to decorate masks and fairy wands that they can carry during the Giant Puppet Parade each day (Noon on Saturday, 1 p.m. on Sunday). In addition, there will face painting, a street clown, and a storyteller, as well as supplies for decorating headbands, making flags, and other craft projects. There will be kids’ activities on site to complement the parade, including a storyteller, street clown, art wall, and children’s tent. Marshfield cartoonist Kent Archer is creating a large black-and-white cartoon that will be blown up and then cut into over many numbered sections. On Saturday, guests (both adults and children) will be invited to decorate the various pieces individually, and then the decorated sections will be reassembled into a unique work of art that combines all of the participants’ creativity, changing through the day. You’ll be able to decorate as many pieces as you’d like and to take your artwork home at the end of the day. For all the details visit northriverarts.org.

The Massachusetts Center for Native American Awareness invites you to the Spring Planting Moon annual pow wow at the Marshfield Fair Grounds this weekend. Gates open at 11am both days. Through song, dance and storytelling we’ll thank Mother Earth for the three main staples we plant annually for the sustenance of our families….beans, corn and squash. For more details about the program visit mcnaa.org. New this year is featured Grammy nominated musician Joseph Fire Crow of the Northern Cheyenne Tribe.
