Check out the Children’s Section at Washington Street & 3rd Street!
This Sunday, May 3, a bank parking lot becomes a very happy place for lots of kids & families as it does twice a year. What’s normally the site for routine errands will be alive with bouncing, sliding, riding, laughing, face painting, balloon twisting and dancing as the Hoboken Spring Arts & Music Festival kicks into gear.
There will be a bouncy house, jumbo inflatable slide, carnival rides, face painters, a sand art station and balloon artists. There will also be five top-notch children’s entertainment groups on the stage in the children’s section of the festival.
At noon, Erin Lee & the Up Past Bedtime Band will delight kids and their grown-ups with a highly interactive show filled with bubbles, confetti and a fine assortment of musical styles.
Garden Street School of the Performing Arts will entertain at 1:00, with their staff of teachers and managers putting on a show that will inspire you to enroll your kids to tap into their inner performer so they can learn to jam along.
My own band Jason Didner and the Jungle Gym Jam will start at 2:00, playing an energetic show containing some fan favorites and introducing some brand new songs that celebrate summer fun, family travel, superheroes and more. Find out why Jim Testa from NJ.com named us one of his picks for the festival. Download three of our tracks for free so you can sing along with some of our tunes!
Stick around for Michael Napolitano and Preschool of Rock, a very popular early childhood music teacher who offers classes in Hoboken. Michael’s group sold out the season opener of Maxwell’s Mini Music Mondays with a thrilling family-oriented show last winter.
At 4, Carol Lester will belt out her award-winning songs for the enjoyment of kids & families taking in the late afternoon time at the festival.
The live entertainment for kids wraps up in thrilling fashion with Little Club Heads, who will transform the kids section into a full blown dance club party perfect for children and their grown-ups, starting at 5:00.
