Mamapalooza Celebrates Women, Mothers and Families this Saturday, May 14, 2011

Kids rock out on stage at Mamapalooza

Mamapalooza, a free music, arts and health festival for women and families, will be held Saturday, May 14 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Kensico Dam Plaza in Valhalla. This is the seventh year for this event featuring live entertainment as well as information, products and activities promoting women’s health and fitness, family life and green living.

The festival kicks off with Heather Buyers’ “Walk Live Westchester” exercise program. Westchester County’s Office for Women, Raging Grannies and other nonprofits will be on hand to provide information on health, wellness and social services for women and families, including victims of domestic violence. There will be shopping, with a farmer’s market, natural cleaning products and soaps, and foods to sample and purchase; there will also be activities for children. Massachusetts Six brings folk, rock and blues to the stage. Visitors are encouraged to bring a chair or blanket and spend the day listening to local music and learning how to make their lives better. Free giveaways and raffles will continue throughout the day. Admission and parking are free, and the festival will be held rain or shine.

Mamapalooza 2011 is coordinated by Paula Caracappa of PPC Group LLC, creators of the Awaken Fairs, and presented by the Motherhood Foundation, an organization that creates and presents visual, literary and performing arts events for mothers.

Kensico Dam Plaza is at the north end of the Bronx River Parkway in Valhalla and can also be reached via Route 22. For more information, visit Mamapalooza.com, call 877.711.MOMS (6667), or call Westchester County Parks at 914.864.PARK.
