Mill River Collaborative is once again hosting a season of fun arts programming for kids at Mill River Playground. On June 7, 2014, Mill River Collaborative will host the 8th Birthday Party for Mill River Playground  from 10am – noon to kick off our summer program season.  Tim & The Space Cadets, a “ki n d i e r o c k” band will perform at the event.  Tim Kubart formed Tim and the Space Cadets in 2009 after four years as a professional kids' musician, and set out to make radio-­-friendly pop rock for all ages.  The band delights kids with their fun approach and original music.
