Something for EVERYONE!

Face painters, balloon animals, a puppet show, bouncy house, and a fire truck all in one fun-fabulous carnival! Face painting will be available all day so be thinking of what masterpiece you would like painted on your cheek. If your masterpiece can't be painted, maybe it can be created with balloons. So maybe artistic masterpieces are not your cup of tea, but the theater is more your style ~ I'm sure you will enjoy our rendition of "The Adventures of Flatman and Bobbin" playing at noon from the puppet theater. Not impressed by puppet adventures, you can always pretend to have your own superhero adventures aboard a real life fire truck. If you're not crazy about fire trucks, art, or theater, you can't go wrong with a trip to the bouncy house. Hours of jumping pleasure await you. So as you can see ~ we've got something for everyone here at SummerFEST!

Fun things to do for kids AND adults!

Get ready to travel the world

There will be plenty of children's entertainment happening under the Big Top at this year's SummerFEST carnival. Angela Bargmann will hit the Big Top stage this year with a suitcase full of fun musical activities for the kids. Her interactive performance of "Folk Songs from Around the World" will be a highlight for kids of all ages. Drew Kelly is back by popular demand, and he will be bringing a piece of African tradition with his African drum expo. So get ready to play some instruments, dance an Irish jig, and experience music like never before under the Big Top!
