YMCA artEMBRACE has done a fantastic job organizing fEASTival’s KidZone this year! Check out the schedule of events they have planned!!…..
KID ZONE ACTIVITIES 12:00 – 5:00 (or as long as supplies last)
ART STATION I & II:
Art stations will be available in the Kid Zone area where kids can relax for a few minutes and paint, watercolor, draw, bead, sculpt, etc. The artwork will be exhibited all around the Kid Zone while families enjoy the rest of the event. When they are ready to leave, the artwork can be picked up from the Kid Zone at any time.
Water Station for Kids (free mini-bottles of water for kids)
ART STATION III – COMMUNITY MURAL ON AN OVERSIZED CANVAS BANNER
Kid’s will paint their choice of something that “makes them happy” (a flower, bug, tree, happy face, sunshine, or the smaller kiddos can just add their cute little hand or fingerprints). All will sign (paint) their name on the banner as one of our “2012 Community Kid Zone Artists”. Goal: During the following week, it would be great if a business somewhere in the Five Points area will allow us to hang the banner for everyone to enjoy…either at a local business or maybe in a “not-so-pleasing” spot that could use a colorful “facelift” for a few days.
FAMILY PHOTO FUN: Pictures to be posted on fEASTival website and Facebook Page 1:00 –2:00
FAMILY DRUMMING FUN w/BILLY: 2:30-3:00pm
Family members can each participate in a revolving “drum circle” choosing to play drums, shakers, or bells. Billy will keep the “beat” of the sassy and energetic Latin style music steady while the “Drum Circle Musicians” practice making “beautiful music” together!
fEASTival PET PAGEANT (see description below) 3:30 – 4:30
BOOGIE WOOGIE TIME WITH ANGEL: 4:45-5pm
Kids, moms, dads, sisters, brothers, cousins, grandparents, friends…everyone will have a blast learning a few new dance moves as Angel takes the group on a “Boogie Woogie” journey of dance to music spanning the decades. No previous dance experience required!
Announcement of “2012 fEASTival Prince & Princess” with ceremonial crowning and prize presentation: 4:45pm
KID ZONE CONTESTS
PRINCE & PRINCESS OF THE fEASTival:
All Kid Zone participants (and their family members) will be able to cast a vote for their choice of “fEASTival Prince” and “fEASTival Princess” at the designated voting station in the Kid Zone between 12:00 – 4:00. They are welcome to recruit others to come to the Kid Zone to cast their vote if they want their “choice” to win. The winners will be announced and crowned in a short ceremony on the Kid Zone Stage at 4:45.
FAVORITE fEASTival PET PAGEANT:
Pets attending the fEASTival will be invited to participate in the “Kid Zone Pet Pageant” at 2:30pm. Owners will parade their pet in front of a panel of appointed “kid” judges. If the pet performs a special talent or trick, they get extra points. If owners know ahead of time, they can plan to dress their pet or bring pet props to win extra points.
