An outdoor festival held rain or shine, Dare Day promises free fun and festivities for the whole family. The day will be full of music, food, crafts and entertainment. Children can hop aboard a kiddie train, take in a magic show, have their faces painted and play games. Adults can walk along the beautiful downtown waterfront and check out the wares of more than 100 vendors offering furniture, toys, carvings, clothing, jewelry, birdhouses, paintings, wind chimes and photography. The aroma of delicious food fills the air with the smells from seafood, Polish sausages, hamburgers and hot dogs! Plenty of cold beverages include fresh squeezed lemonade, slushes and all kinds of soft drinks. The festival opens at 10:00 with a prayer by a local pastor for the "Blessing of the Season" and the music and festivities begin.
