Blog : Spooktacular Kids Festival this Saturday at Stratham Hill Park

By Katelyn | Oct 5, 2015 | in

Stop by the Spooktacular Kids Festival at Stratham Hill Park this Saturday, October 10, from 10 am to 4 pm. The day will feature a spooky fun run, music, magic, train ride, face painting, games, crafts, a toy flea market, food trucks, and promises to have a little something for everybody.

The Spooktacular Kids Festival will benefit Rett's Roost, a sanctuary for families with a child affected by cancer. Rett's Roost is a non-profit organization established by Jim and Deana Cavan in memory of their son Everett "Rett" Cavan who passed away from pediatric cancer at just 10 months old.

Jim Cavan worked as the Director of Media at the Green Alliance for five years, and although he continues to write for publications in the area, Jim and Deana have made it their mission to honor Rett. In memory of Rett, the Cavans launched Rett’s Roost in early July. Families attend these “Roosts” free of charge and to cover expenses, Deana and Jim plan to conduct regular fundraisers to supplement individual donations.

At Rett's Roost, the Cavans provide retreats for families with children affected by cancer and have created a loving and supportive community to ease their experience with the disease. Guests enjoy nutritious meals and daily classes in art, yoga, meditation, healthy habits, therapeutic play and learning, and mindfulness towards the natural and spiritual world–holistic means of healing that treat the body and soul.

Rett’s Roost is looking forward to the Spooktacular Kids Festival to raise money and awareness of the organization. Jim Cavan credits Melissa Aho, the owner of longstanding GA Business Partner Ultra Geothermal, a sponsor for the event, and her daughter, Jordan, a senior at Coe-Brown Academy in Northwood, for helping organize and promote the Spooktacular.
