100% Chance of Fun

Yesterday won’t go away, we had too much fun at the 2017 Kid Central Festival in Downtown Bangor. There was henna art, candy necklace making, so many games, hat creating, giant bubble blowing, seed planting and so much more. And how could we talk about the amazing time that was yesterday without thanking the incomparable Chris Van Dusen for entertaining kids with a lively reading from his newest book, Hattie & Hudson, and delighting so many families with signed copies of his books.

Kid Central Festival’s 7th year wouldn’t be what it is without the support of the kids that love it, the families that attend it, the businesses and organizations that put on so many amazing activities, the cadre of volunteers who help keep it running and the city who lets us take over little bits of downtown every year.

We’re already looking ahead to next year, the 8th annual Kid Central Festival to be held Saturday, May 5, 2018. Can’t wait to see you for our extra special cinco de mayo edition of this annual favorite!

These Kids are the Stars!

There were singers, little and big and dancers twirling across our stage. Costumes, ice cream, jokes and face painting too! Don’t forget the tomato seeds, flowers planted, tie dye and more, too. These are just a few of the things that made the beautiful Saturday amazing. Thank you everyone for bringing the fun to the 6th annual Kid Central Festival. See you next year on the first Saturday of May! (5/6/2017)
