BERLIN — This year, Berlin is going back to Wonderland for its Annual Spring Celebration, April 9 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The celebration will coincide with the Berlin Little League Parade on Saturday at 8 a.m. Then the day will be filled with themed games and crafts, screenings of the Alice in Wonderland movie in the Chamber of Commerce and Visitor’s Center, characters from the book throughout town, pictures with the White Rabbit, a Mad Hatter Hat Contest, musician Ray Owen, a moon bounce, face-painting, story time and more.
All games and crafts will be covered by the one-time purchase of a wristband for $5. Carriage rides will be available at cost. A kids “tea” party will be featured in the Visitor’s Center with baked goods, “tea” (water, milk and juice), sweets and a take home tea cup for $5. There will be three seatings — 11 a.m., 12:15 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. Reservations are required; please contact the Chamber at 410-641-4775 to confirm your spot.
Organizers have added another new event this year for the celebration as well. In keeping with the tradition of Second Friday, the chamber is hosting an Alice in Wonderland Art Stroll Show at the Visitor’s Center and Chamber of Commerce building with all Wonderland themed pieces of art, in any medium.
It is an all-ages show, free to enter, and all entries are welcome. The show will take place April 8, from 5 to 8 p.m. The pieces will be up during Spring Celebration as well for display. If you would like to make reservations for the tea, submit work for the Art Stroll, or be a volunteer (students get community service hours), contact the chamber at 410-641-4775 or [email protected].
