Educational fun on the way at Farm Day

June 5, 2013 by  

The Down on the Farm Day, hosted by the Charlotte Nature Museum, is offering a chance for children to meet farm animals and learn valuable facts about the critters.

Farm Day is held in the middle of Charlotte and offers a chance for local businesses to gain some exposure. Parents are sure to take interest in digital business cards from local print companies, while banner printing offers materials to catch the eyes of passersby.

The Farm Day will have let people get close to goats, sheep, chickens, rabbits, geese and other farm animals. The creatures at the event are tame and available for the little ones to pet. Such exposure is sure to create smiles and laughter throughout the park.

Farm Day will also teach children facts about each animal that could prove interesting for the grownups in attendance, too. For example, sheep grow about eight pounds of wool a year and each pound can turn into 10 miles of yarn.

Guests could bring a camera to capture the fun and remember the fun on the farm forever. Also, plenty of souvenirs will be available so, each child can take home a few toys and trinkets to cherish and remind them of the time their spent at Down on the Farm Day.

The Farm Day event is open to guests of all ages on June 15, starting at 10:00 am, and located at Dilworth, Myers Park, 1658 Sterling Road in Charlotte. For more information about the event, call 704-372-6261.
