'Teddy Bear Tea Party' in Cape May

What Is It: The guest list at this party is very inclusive. The popular Teddy Bear Tea Parties at Emlen Physick Estate welcome young fans of teddy bears, plus those huggable animals themselves - or other stuffed animals, or dolls - plus any parents or adults who want to join the fun.

What To Expect: Of course, it's cute any time kids sit down for a tea party with their favorite silent pets. But today's Teddy Bear Tea Party also offers a child-centric menu, story times and activities - some with a leader in a teddy-bear costume - and a goody bag to take home.

Event Info: Party time is noon at the Emlen Physick Estate, the headquarters of the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities, 1048 Washington Ave., Cape May. Admission is $10 for kids ages 3 to 12 and $18 for adults; bears are free. For reservations or more details, visit capemaymac.org or call 609-884-5404.
