Rec Fest 2015 kicked off with frost on the ground, a chill in the air and bundled kids and families. However, the sun began to shine through and the layers started to be shed as games kicked off. Excitement started to brew as picture day activities started and smiles came through in individual and team pictures.
It was certainly cold but we are sure that the memories these players and families create today will be cherished ! A fun family environment being created as the bounce houses opened for the energy filled kids, the multi-touch demo day kicked off and the warmth of this beautiful fall day brightened the hearts of young and old !!
Enjoy this beautiful day for Rec Fest 2015 .... more pictures to come !

Parks & Rec has asked us to pass on some very important information regarding parking at Riverfront Park:
It is extremely important that ALL soccer families attending practices & games park in the lot at 200 Welles Street (main lot at Riverfront behind gazebo).
If you park in the boathouse lot, problems will be created for boaters looking to use the designated boat trailer parking and groups that have reserved the banquet facility. It will also create difficulties for the crew teams and park users coming to the playground and to visit the riverfront. Those that will be most tempted to park in the boathouse lot will be those assigned to field #1 (closest to boat house). This also means no parking along the white fence.
Additionally, parking along the entrance drive or in posted no parking areas is not permitted. The Police Department has been asked to patrol the lots during the peak use times on weeknights, 5:30-7:00 p.m., and on weekends to enforce the parking regulations.
If you are a coach or manager - please pass this information along to your away teams. For an illustrated view of parking directions click here.
We need your help! Recycle your gently used sporting goods!
Dig through your garage and round up all your unwanted sports equipment and bring it to the Locker Room. The Locker Room provides used sports equipment to those in need in Glastonbury- FREE of charge. Donating is a great way to recycle unused and outgrown sports equipment and de-clutter your garage at the same time!
We don't want the cost of equipment to stop any child from playing the game!
Donations can be dropped off at the following location:
The Locker Room
Academy Teen Center
2143 Main Street
