This year marks the 19th anniversary of Greenwich Land Trust’s Go Wild! annual Family Field Day, widely regarded as one of the best family events of the year. Get ready to take a ride on the enormous hot air balloons soaring above the Greenwich Polo fields at Conyers Farm, giving GLT supporters a spectacular view of the expansive 62-acre-preserve below. 2018 Go Wild! co-chairs, Glenn Shaw and Magali Swanson and their fabulous committee, have been planning and preparing all year to make this the best Go Wild! ever!
Go Wild! offers activities and entertainment for all ages including live music, a rock-climbing wall, petting zoo, bungee trampolines, inflatable maze, animal encounters, gaga courts, autumn crafts, and much more. Ticket prices also include delicious food truck fare from Caffè Bon, Cowabunga, New Haven Pizza Truck, Spuds Your Way, and Taco Pacifco, as well as refreshments from Juicy Juice Splashers Oragnic, RISE Brewing Co., and adult beverages served throughout the day. Admission covers all rides, food, and entertainment.
