The event will be held from noon to 6 p.m. at Sugar Loaf  Crossing, behind the Sugar Loaf Post Office, with live music by Justin Bell, Mighty Girl, The Royal Dumonts, and Jack Higgins and Friends.
Food and drinks will be available from Allan's Falafel, the Sugar Loaf Fire Co., and Rushing Duck Brewery. Feel free to bring a picnic basket, an don't forget lawn chairs and blankets.
There will be activities for the kids and a raffle. Admission is $10, or $5 for ages 10 to 18, and free for children under 10.
The event is part of the American Alzheimer's Association's The Longest Day campaign, which is about "love for all those affected by Alzheimer's disease. On the summer solstice, team up with the Alzheimer’s Association and select any activity you love — or an activity loved by those affected — to help end Alzheimer’s. Together, we will raise funds and awareness for care and support while advancing research toward the first survivor of Alzheimer’s."
