free-family-friendly-children-1961915443639

The Troy Savings Bank Music Hall presents free summer fun for children with the Barker Park Kids’ Summer Series. This year they are launching into SPACE! to explore everything from music to crafts!

Join them for an out-of-this world Space Carnival! Make a UFO at our craft station, dance to the space themed playlist, and snap a picture in the photo booth, complete with planet and star props. Face painting, games, books, and so much more – join them for this exciting kick-off to the series!

The Hall is also partnering with a local charity group, Troy Street Soldiers. Every Thursday night in Barker Park, they share a free meal for anyone in need, and distribute food, household goods, and clothing. The Hall will be requesting and collecting donations of children’s books, clothing, and food to help assist their program.

The Hall will present a new performer or activity in Barker Park, located on the corner of 3rd and State Streets in downtown Troy, every Thursday at 11 AM, starting July 11 through August 29!
