Mother’s will also have Wonder Wieners in attendance stuffing buns with its delicious sausages. The firkin gets tapped at 6 p.m. sharp, so don’t be late.

     
  3. Movie Night at Founders Park

  4. Kids Cooking Class
    If you’re looking for something fun to do with your little ones, then sign them up for a tour of Italy. Chef HJ Schumer with the Price Cutter Culinary Classroom is here to teach the kids how to make an Italian entrée, a kid-friendly side dish and a healthy salad. Buon appetito!
