Some highlights of the day include pony rides, bouncy castles and face painting stations.

There will also be clay art workshops where children will be encouraged to use their skills and imagination to sculpt and bold, and an imagination station where children can make hats and wands to wear during the festival.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. rain or shine. Organizers encourage participants to dress for the weather and be safe an courteous. All children attending must be accompanied by an adult.
