People get very nostalgic about games they played as a child.  Perhaps one of the most iconic games that's still a mainstay for children is Candy Land.

Who can forget the trek through Gumdrop Pass or Peppermint Stick Forest?  Passing the Lollipop Woods always made me feel like I might actually win the game, and so did getting a bump up the Rainbow Trail.

Candy Land is a classic kids game, and still as popular as ever, which is why the Rochester Community is hosting a life-size Candy Land game on Sunday, April 30, from 11am - 2pm.

It's called Nadeau Drive Family Fun Day, and all are welcome.  If you need a GPS address, it's at 55 Nadeau Drive, Rochester, New Hampshire.  It's sponsored by Spaulding Composites, Jaeger USA, and The Rubber Company.

The event features raffles, face art, games, treats, food trucks, animals, and plenty of photo opportunities for the entire family.  There's also a dance floor with DJ Jodi.
