Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden is proud to present its third annual outdoor event, Sprinklerfest 2013. This unique outdoor event is held on the four-acre South Meadow of the Snug Harbor Campus. It is scheduled for Friday, August 9, 2013 from 1 to 5 p.m. In the event of rain, the event will take place the following Friday, August 16th. As in the past, the festivities will feature dozens of open sprinklers for kids of all ages to run, jump and skip through, plus a dunk tank for dunking Snug Harbor staffers. Admission to this event is free.
This international smash-hit may be the most popular musical in the world. In 19th century France, Jean Valjean is released from 19 years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a life-long struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways. Finally, during the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary who has captured the heart of Valjean's adopted daughter. His world-view shattered, Javert commits suicide, and Valjean at last attains the peace he has sought for so long.
