Each year on the first Sunday of May, Downtown Portsmouth becomes headquarters for children of all ages with the celebration of Children's Day. An estimated 10,000+ "children" visit Portsmouth to take part in an afternoon of fun on the Seacoast. This Festival combines family-friendly activities, entertainment and usually, an ice cream sundae – all sponsored, hosted and supported by the Downtown Merchants, area companies, civic organizations and volunteers of the Seacoast. From a Hoola Hoop Contest to a "photo – op" with a favorite friend from Character Island, the day is filled with something for everyone.
