Spend a relaxing day with your family & friends at the Deering Estate and enjoy a picnic on the main lawn. Please note that grilling and cooking is not permitted on the Estate.
There will be a Human Chess Match hosted by Door to the Arts, Inc. & St. John Neumann Catholic School at 2:00 pm in the Courtyard. Watch as a chess match comes alive! Students dressed in full costume will make their grand entrance and take their positions on the life-size chess board. Players will call out moves from an adjoining table causing the corresponding live chess pieces to move, and the amazine battle of skill & strategy begins!
