)-- The 20th annual Teddy Bear Festival hosted by the Woman’s Club of Greater New Milford will take place on the town green on Saturday, June 4th from 10 to 3. Smokey the Bear will be joining us again this year, escorted by firefighters from Water Witch Hose Company No. 2, and heading up the Teddy Bear Parade at 12:00 Noon. Attendees are invited to join in the parade with their furry friends in the parade.
The highlight of the festival is always the Teddy Bear Hospital. Attendees are invited to bring their favorite plush toys for a check-up with the volunteer nurses from the Girl Scouts, “Surgeons” will be available for plush friends in need of repairs. Back by popular demand, the hospital will include an adoption center for bears in need of new homes, as well as their Bare Bear Boutique to outfit your newly adopted friend or accessorize one you already have. All Teddy Bear Hospital services are free of charge, but co-pay donations are welcome.
Featured entertainment this year will be story time under the Big Tree, a Princess Tea Time featured two times throughout the day, the Teddy Bear Parade, a Games area with prizes, and many others.
And don’t forget to support vendors from area businesses who will be donating prizes for their raffle. This year, there is also an expanded food vendor area to accommodate a variety requests.
