When March comes in like a lion…
…let’s celebrate that it’s almost Spring!

Sunday, 4/23 Three Sessions:

11:30 AM – sold out

You’ll leave with a fairy door to place inside or outside for fairy friends to find, a tiny potion bottle, and recipes for making magic fairy potions.

For all ages, 4 years to adult. Reservations Required. $25pp.
Children under age 7 must be accompanied by a participating adult.

Where in the Square? 

dec8f3c0-e350-4233-93e7-cfb1a32e5579What 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.
