Callicoon Tractor Parade

(I’ll be updating this often, so check back!)

Of course your kids can always play in the large fenced yard, there’s lots of room for soccer, volleyball, badminton, etc. and they can go down to the lake and play in the water.

There are lots of kid-centric things to do around Sullivan County, outdoors and in.  Here I’m going to list all the kids stuff I can track down.

All Summer

Just 15 minutes away is The Petting Zoo at Breezeway FarmThe Forestburgh Playhouse (which presents musicals during the summer season) is presenting Seussical this summer (2010). The Apple Pond Farm (30 min. drive) has their Farming With Kids program every Friday and Saturday, 10 am during the summer. The Callicoon Theater shows movies for kids all summer long. Bethel Woods for the Arts presents  music all year, but has lawn seating in the summer.
