The Riverside Festival has plenty of great activities for children, making it a great family day outing.
Our Children’s Art Tent is brimming with lots of art supplies, donated by Crayola, for the kids to express their natural creativity, and is staffed by Arts Community of Easton artists who can assist them. Open to children and young adults. Big kids too!
Special Event: 10,000 Crane Project ~ create a origami crane to hang in our trees, take home, offer to the ongoing Childrens Hospital Mobiles!
In Scott Park, the circular lawn in front of the music stage is a hit for kids who love to dance (and most do!) With the performing arts being present this year we should see more dancers. This year will be even more exciting as the Children s Art Tent and projects continue to grow.
If they need to burn off a little energy, both Riverside Park and Scott Park have well-designed playgrounds. The one in Riverside Park has a safety fence around it so you can relax and watch them while taking a well- deserved break, participate in the available arts or while your older children are busy with craft making, your little ones can be free to play with new found friends on the play ground. Check back soon for new events coming!
School of Natural Learning with Cathy Stoops is with us this year! Children are invited to observe and interact with the natural world by using the lines and movement of the riverscape, flora and fauna native to Riverside Park as inspiration for making painting/collages approximately 8×10. As the water based artwork dries it will be hung on lines creating an instant gallery and display. Children may collect their art after its dried.
