Each Family Fun Night is aimed at providing families an opportunity to connect with their children and each other around creative, play-based, and/or educational opportunities and activities. Most of the families in attendance have children in early childhood (under age 10); however, families with older children and older siblings also are invited to attend. All Family Fun Nights take place at the former Nathan Hale School in Manchester’s East Side, 160 Spruce Street. Family Fun Nights are based on the idea that, when it comes to creating connections, “fun comes first.” These events provide families a positive, no cost opportunity for connection, recreation and fond memories to last a lifetime.
