Live 50s & 60s Music: The Bulldogs perform live in Peabody Chapel beginning at 10:30 a.m. and ending with a likely standing ovation at 1:30 p.m. Voted “Best Oldies Performers” nine years in a row by whatzup magazine, The Bulldogs revisit the days of drive ins and sock hops with tunes from Buddy Holly, Billy Haley, The Beach Boys, Elvis, The Beatles and more.
Children’s Activity Area: With special thanks to sponsors Visiting Nurses and Encore Rehabilitation, Peabody’s Tulip Festival kids’ zone will offer activities designed specifically for youngsters.

Spiderman will appear in the morning, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., and a Minion will greet guests in the afternoon, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.
Free Fun Food: No celebration would be complete without classic picnic fare, so Peabody will provide complimentary hot dogs, chips and drinks. Families can fuel up at no charge, but Amish baked goods and Grand’s Ice Cream also will be available for purchase.
Horse & Wagon Rides: Between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., youngsters and those young-at-heart are invited to hop on a horse-drawn wagon for a free trip around the Peabody campus. Wagon rides will be wheelchair accessible.
