Field Day with What Cheer? Brigade

SPACE presents Field Day in Payson Park. Join us for a pre-July 4th family-friendly celebration with a day full of play complete with all of the weird, wild, and wonderful surprises you expect from SPACE.


Plan to:

+ Bring a picnic blanket and a favorite game or book

+ Make a costume or dress to the nines to keep our field games strange

+ Decorate your wheels ahead of time for our bike parade around the back bay!
