Does your child want to participate in the 2nd Annual Summer Solstice Children's Parade?  Details on our Summer Solstice Children's workshop will be posted soon.  The theme of this year's parade is Celebrating Unity and your child will have an opportunity to create his or her favorite character or to create their very own, unique character.

The workshops are taught by experienced Solstice artists. Children can make puppets, hats, masks, costumes, and instruments for the Childrens' Parade. The workshop includes parade performance, dance, and music training.

Workshop schedules and locations for 2017 to be announced

The children's parade will begin at 2:30PM on Sunday and will start at the Main Stage, travel through the park and end at the Children's Stage.  At the end of the parade there will be a 10 - 15 minute performance.

There will be a lot of other exciting activities in the Children's Area including performances by storytellers, musicians, jugglers, puppeteers and more.  Kids can jump on an air slide, Eurobungy on a trampoline, explore the large inflatables that will be installed in the park, have their faces painted or work on free art projects.

Check back for the Stage line up!  We will have this updated as soon as the line up is complete.
