The Lowell Folk Festival brings nearly 100,000 people to the Mill City, and this year, those crowds will also help fight addiction.
Our friends at Local Laborers 429, who have been very generous in their support of the Megan House Foundation, are once again contributing to the cause. They’ve hired Create a Arts, a company that does face painting and balloon art, to work a booth in the Kids Area at the 30th Lowell Folk Festival.
Create a Arts will be painting children’s faces and helping them make their favorite creatures out of balloons free of charge Saturday and Sunday, beginning at noon. In turn, volunteers from Local Laborers 429 will ask folks who partake in the kids activities to make donations to Megan’s House.
The kids’ area on Shattuck Street, which provides many family friendly activities, is one of the busiest attractions at this great annual event. Given its popularity, we are looking forward to raising a lot of money for Megan’s House.
The Megan House Foundation wishes to thank the good men and women of Local Laborers 429 for their continued support and their very generous gesture this coming weekend.
We encourage everyone to visit Downtown Lowell for this entertaining three day event Friday evening through Sunday. And when you’re there, please make sure to visit the Kids Area on Shattuck Street and help us continue the fight against addiction.
