Children’s Day 2016- Sunday, May 1st (12 Noon - 4pm)

Who says children aren't in charge? Each year on the first Sunday of May, Downtown Portsmouth becomes headquarters for children of all ages with the celebration of Children's Day. An estimated 10,000+ "children" visit Portsmouth to take part in an afternoon of fun.

This Festival combines family-friendly activities and entertainment - all sponsored, hosted and supported by the Downtown Merchants, area companies, civic organizations and volunteers of the Seacoast. From a cruise aboard the M/V Thomas Laighton to a "photo - op" with a favorite friend from Character Island, the day is filled with something for everyone.

Times that volunteers are needed: 8:00 AM - 5:30 PM

Location: Downtown Portsmouth
