Spend a relaxing day with your family and friends at the Deering Estate at Cutler and enjoy a picnic on the main lawn. The Deering Estate will be open to guests on Sunday, Apr. 21, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., for a reduced rate of $7 for all ages.
There will be a Human Chess Match hosted by Door to the Arts Inc. and St. John Neumann Catholic School at 2 p.m. in the courtyard. Watch as a chess match comes alive. Students dressed in full costume will make their grand entrance and take their positions on the life-size chessboard. Players will call out moves from an adjoining table causing the corresponding live chess pieces to move, and the amazing battle of skill and strategy begins.
