Cat Kid and Molly Pollywog have started an epic club to teach 21 rambunctious baby frogs how to make their own comics! Their fishy father Flippy is overjoyed that his kids will learn to unleash their creativity, but when the frogs’ constant bickering and outrageous imaginations send their comics comically off the rails, Flippy flips out! Will the club survive? Will the frogs ever get along? And will creativity finally save the day? All will be answered in this madcap musical based on Dav Pilkey’s irreverently hilarious book series.

Join us in Carroll Creek Park on November 18th as the 2023 – 2024 fleet sets sail! There will be music and food trucks to spectators to enjoy! Walk along the creek and see first hand what goes in to this incredible display and vote for your boat while you’re there.
The fleet includes gaff-rigged ketches, yawls, three-masted schooners and pirate ships, moored with their sail outlines, rigging and decks lit up every day from dusk till dawn. If you can’t imagine it make sure to come by and take a look at the amazing flotilla!
Not only are these boats easy on the eyes, they raise money for good causes! Vote for your favorite and you’ll be donating to a selected charity at the same time. Learn more about the organization at coloronthecreek.com.
Please be cautious and careful as this is an event with heavy machinery and there will be plenty of safe viewing area on the suspension bridge.

Enjoy hot apple cider and heirloom-recipe baked goods. Children can make a craft and enjoy a visit with Belsnickel. In the 19th and early 20th centuries, Christmas in Catoctin Furnace included a visit from Belsnickel to the homes of German immigrants. During this visit, which took place two weeks before Christmas, Belsnickel rewarded good children with treats but carried a switch to punish naughty ones.

The day concludes with the cheery lights and music of the City of Brunswick's Holiday Parade and tree lighting with cocoa for all!
