Dartmouth Week: Mothers unite to develop Facebook page, family festival

What started as an online effort to bring local mothers together has morphed into an in-person family fall festival that organizers hope will further unite the community. 

The inaugural festival was held from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 23 outside St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, 351 Elm St. The festivities included a costume contest, touch a truck with Dartmouth police and fire vehicles, a bounce house, pumpkin painting, cookie decorating, a performance by Toe Jam Puppet Band, face painting and a photo booth, among other offerings.

The effort began through the formation of a Facebook page about a year ago, inspired by St. Peter’s Rector Rev. Scott Ciosek.
