Pyramid Hill presents a new program for families
General admission to the park is $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 6-12. Pyramid Hill members and children 5 and under are free.
Family Fun on the Hill kicks off from 6-8 p.m. Friday with Magic on the Hill in front of Abracadabra. During Magic on the Hill, magicians Charlie Cadabra and Tom Bemmes will entertain the audience with their magic acts with the help of a bunny friend. Children will also have the chance to do a magic-themed activity by building their own magic wheel, which they can take home.
“They’re going to start with half an hour of close-up magic. They’re going to walk around the patio with a view, where the event will take place, and do magic for everyone,” Robinson said.
Then the magicians will take the stage at 6:30 p.m., starting with Bemmes, and after a short break, Cadabra will perform. The performances will end with a session, where guests will have the chance to come and pet the Cadabra rabbit.
From 1 to 3 p.m. on July 17, the Duebbie Queens Ice Cream Truck will be at the Grand Pavilion on Pyramid Hill for an Ice Cream Party on the Hill. Each guest will receive a free ice cream cone. Plus, a performance by Steelband Bacchanal will help bring a fun holiday vibe to the event. With the band’s Caribbean tunes and help from Pyramid Hill’s iconic ‘Melinda on the Beach’ statue, guests will feel like they’re on the beach, right in Hamilton.
“I’m excited about the variety of things to come. We have so much planned that it’s going to be fun to see who shows up on what night and how everyone reacts to it. Each event is going to be jam-packed with activities and entertainment, so I’m excited to be able to bring these fun events to the community,” Robinson said.
From 7:30-11:30 p.m. on Friday, July 22, Pyramid Hill will host Let’s Go Fly a Kite on the Hill, where guests can fly a kite and watch a movie. You can bring kites to the Grand Pavilion Statue Garden and fly through the sky. After dark, guests will watch a classic Disney movie. Go to pyramidhill.org/familyfunonthehill2022 for more details on each of the films.
Another Family Fun on the Hill highlight will include Meteor Night on the Hill on Friday, August 12 from 8 p.m. to midnight. Guests will stay up late to watch a meteor shower and watch a space-themed movie.
There will also be a Games Night on the Hill with board games and a board game adventure movie from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. on September 16. For a full list of events and activities, and other details, go to pyramidhill.org/familyfunonthehill2022.
“We wanted to bring variety to Family Fun on the Hill, so we could have something for everyone,” Robinson said. “It’s something we can all benefit from as a community.”
You can bring low folding chairs, blankets and sleeping bags.
Outside alcohol is not allowed. For adults, a bar will be open on movie nights and concessions will be on sale with sodas and other non-alcoholic beverages, light snacks and candy.
