Follow That Fox! An Art and Discovery Adventure in East Arlington
School’s out, and kids who have time on their hands now have a fun new way to explore Arlington. Follow That Fox! is an art and discovery adventure that will have kids learning about their community as they find 15 wily foxes who ask questions that require powers of observation and thinking.
The game is sponsored by Artbeat Creativity Store and Studio as part of its 20th birthday celebration. Anyone ages four through adult can join in exploring the mile-long trek along Mass Ave in East Arlington from the Cambridge line to Spy Pond. Pick up an entry form at Artbeat and then look for signs with foxes of different colors who ask questions about history, word definitions, and wildlife. Write the answers on the form and turn it in to Artbeat to be entered into monthly drawings for free toys, art projects and more. The adventure lasts all summer, and it can be done any time from now through August 25.

Where in the Square?
What do a 5ft giraffe, a brick from Babe Ruth’s house, and an antique pump organ have in common? They can all be found in the Capitol Square business district of East Arlington. And finding them can win you prizes.
Pick up a Passport at this Saturday’s Town Day in Arlington Center, or at Artbeat anytime afterward. Then take an interactive journey through Capitol Square,
matching “top attractions” with the corresponding businesses. Ask the businesses to stamp your passport, then bring your completed passport to Artbeat to be entered to win monthly and grand prize drawings. TAKE YOUR TIME – the passport game starts in September and runs throughout the holiday season, so you’ll have plenty of time to find all the special goods and services that make Capitol Square such a great place to be.
