Hideout kids theatre

Hideout Kids Theatre will offer two 45-minute shows at 6:30pm and 7:30pm under the gazebo in the Children’s Imagination Garden. Four improvisors will act silly, kids will laugh loudly, and parents will watch happily as a new and unique story unfolds biased on the suggestions of the kids in the audience. Kids gain confidence from jumping on stage, and parents get to see their children in a positive light. Laughter brings people together, so what could be better than offering a way for families to laugh together?

Jasper & Costello specialize in top-notch children’s entertainment. Offering amazing balloon artistry, with never-seen-before giant fun sculptures, truly beautiful face painting, and other touches to keep children excited, engaged and thrilled!

Community Fairy Garden

Explore the Community Fairy Garden housed on the side of the Visitors Center. A Fairy Garden is a miniature garden complete with structures and tiny plants like succulents, moss and weeping figs that creates a magical dwelling for sprites and fairies.

The community is invited to add to the fairy garden anytime between now and the festival.
