The spectacular new Bibby and Harold Alfond Children's Garden at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay, Maine, opens Thursday, July 8. The garden celebrates children's literature with a Maine tie. The grand opening celebration kicks off at 9 a.m. with children's activities on CMBA's great lawn, moves to welcoming remarks at 10:30 a.m., then it really gets rolling with a parade at 11:15 a.m. Expect children's literary characters, such as Miss Rumphius, to be brought to life. Following the parade, chickens and frogs will be let loose in the children's garden, and what kid wouldn't want to miss that? Activities will continue throughout the day, with refreshments in the Seagull pavilion.
