NAISA Sound Bash Installation

From March 11 to April 23, NAISA's exhibition space will be filled with a new selection of everyday objects especially selected for the interesting sounds they make when struck or played, offering you a chance to play with sound and manipulate it live. Open Saturday and Sundays March 11 - April 30, 11am - 4pm or by appointment. The Sound Bash is designed to be a family-friendly installation, offering interactive and sonic storytelling possibilities. Children of all ages can play, strike, pluck, or tap a collection of found objects that are amplified and modified to reveal unusual sounds that they didn't think were possible. Pay-What-You-Can.

A new event at this year’s taffy pull is the Bunker Hill Egg Toss championship. Saturday’s event also features wagon rides to the sugar bush where the sap is gathered from maple trees to eventually become maple syrup.  The public can also get tours of the sugar shack. In addition, there are photo opportunities with bunnies and kids can have their faces painted. There is no admission charge to the taffy pull.
