Kid’s Daycation (Optional)

Adults have Daycations at The War Memorial, and now kids can, too! Everyone is welcome to join us for a relaxing afternoon to enjoy a picnic lunch on our beautiful lakefront lawn, weather permitting. We will then head inside to the Patriot Theater to watch an entertaining movie!  A great way to spend a lazy summer afternoon! Concessions will be available for sale. 

Please bring your picnic lunch or pack a lunch to send with your child.

Children under 8 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
