Child's Play at German Fest
The best thing to pair with a little dog such as myself is a little kid. They love to play, get messy, and eat foods that stick to their face, and so do I. That’s why I’m excited that German Fest is featuring a lineup of kid-friendly attractions and activities for the 2008 Fest. Here’s a run-down of the kiddie-fun that has my tail wagging:
All Weekend Long: German Fest’s Cultural Village is hosting the “Children’s Passport Activity”. It’s a really cheap ticket to international fun, free in fact, that will entertain the kids while they learn something. To participate, kids can pick up a free “passport” at any of the information booths in the Cultural Village. From there, they can roam to different displays about German Americans, learn a new fact, and receive a unique stamp for each display they visit. Kids who fill their entire passport will receive a prize.
The hours for the passport program are:
Thursday, July 24 from 5 to 8 p.m.
Friday, July 25 from 3 to 7 p.m.
Saturday, July 26 from 3 to 7 p.m.
Sunday, July 27 from 1 to 7 p.m.
Thursday, July 24: Kids can explore the German Fest grounds to paint their own souvenir t-shirts, create crafts in Pretzel park, or ride the sky glider. Also, both a yodeling contest and an alphorn contest will showcase kids’ talent. Talk about live entertainment….”Yodelehee-hoo!”
Saturday, July 26: The kids can come watch me race! It will be an exciting afternoon beginning with the Doxie costume contest at 1 p.m. and the Wiener Dog Races at 3 p.m. I’d love to see a crowd there, and kids are so cute, so bring them on over.
Sunday, July 27: Kids can take part in a special parade in Pretzel Park at 3 p.m.
