NASHUA – The Lil’ Iguana’s hosted its Family Fun Day Saturday at Nashua High School South, offering kids different activities ranging from laser tag to an escape room.

Admission was just $1, mainly to get a headcount on attendees, and ran from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Jim Tomaszewski, executive director at Lil’ Iguana, said he estimates there were 1,300 people who passed through the event at 1 p.m. Saturday.

“We always have a good turnout,” Tomaszewski said.

Aside from games and activities, there also was a variety of food offered, like mac and cheese from Mr. Mac’s Macaroni and Cheese. With both gyms packed with vendors, bounce houses and different things for families to do he said, “The parents are smiling, and it’s a stress-free day.”

There also was an educational component that coincided with the family fun.

Tomaszewski said they provided health, safety and literacy education.

“We have storytimes and teach kids about the power of reading,” Tomaszewski said.

Whether reading or gliding down an inflatable slide, he said the event was a day to spend with family.
