Fun options for kids abound on Saturday
Thrill seekers will get an adrenaline rush on the spinning, twirling, gravity-defying midway rides. The carnival games and booths provide challenging tests of skill and maybe require a little bit of luck. The giant inflatables elicit squeals of delight from young and the young-at-heart guests.
Kids also have several choices for hands-on creative fun throughout the day on Saturday. The St. Peters Cultural Arts Centre again hosts Arty’s Corner where kids can make a special keepsake commemorating their time at the festival. The Home Depot Kids’ Workshop also is back this year with unique projects for kids to build. Both activities are free of charge and located in a special area near the marina.
Also on Saturday, the Family Stage features a full line-up of entertainment designed to capture a child’s imagination.
Abra-Kid-Abra amuses with a comedy magic show calling for audience participation and guaranteeing a large dose of laughter. Monkey Tales Theatre, performing in colorful costumes and featuring live music, teaches positive lessons on acceptance and responsibility. Budding musicians from the Childbloom Guitar Program of St. Charles County play several selections and a troupe of talented youth from Excel Performing Arts share some high-energy dance routines. Kids of all ages also will be dazzled and entertained by Mad Science. Featuring fascinating science demonstrations that include chemical reactions and bubbling potions, the show is sure to inspire the scientist in every member of the audience.
The activities expressly designed for kids at Celebrate St. Peters have the makings of great family memories. So, pack up the kids, dab on the sunscreen, and join the festivities at 370 Lakeside Park.
