Cheverly Day (aka The Most Wonderful Day of the Year!)

Cheverly Day is fast-approaching on Saturday, May 22, and if you live in town, or in the local area, it is a must-attend family-friendly event! The festivities kick off with the Cheverly Day Dance (aka the Cheverly Prom) on Friday evening. I won't be writing more about that because: first, it is sold out; and second, it is an un-family friendly event because no kids are allowed. (Don't fear, though, Cheverly Day features lots of family-friendly music and dance opportunities!)

All activities take place in and around the Cheverly Town Hall and Cheverly Town Park, located at 6401 Forest Road, Cheverly, MD.

Saturday kicks off with the Cicada Crunch and continues with the infamous East v. West Softball Game at 11am (arrive early to warm-up; the organizers plan to start promptly this year, breaking all past Cheverly Day traditions!)

By 11:30 you can indulge in fantastic food and at noon it's time to start drinking the St. Ambrose Men's Club Beer Garden!

Information tables hosted by local groups, organizations--and, I venture to guess, numerous political candidates--will be open from 1pm-6pm. For the second year in a row, the Cheverly Parent Resource Center will host a "Tots Corner" during this time as well. This is a welcome space just for younger children who may be a bit overwhelmed by the action of the midway.

Speaking 1pm head over to the tennis courts which will be transformed into a carnival midway for lots of fun games for the kids. Buy your Cheverly Day t-shirt there early. It's extra-cute this year and is expected to sell out. Games close down at 5pm.

Between 2 and 4pm you and your kids can get up close to some raptors (birds of prey) demonstrated by Watkins Park staff members.

At 6pm, head over to the Community Center Gym for a new-this-year Family Dance Party with DJ Iana.

Yes, enjoying all that is Cheverly Day is is a marathon, not a sprint. (Unless, that is, you hope to claim first place in the Cicada Crunch!).

But wait! There's more! Check back tomorrow for all the details about the live music and fireworks!
