The grounds will be alive with entertainment for all ages with an interactive treasure hunt throughout the Festival art exhibit, hat making, balloon art, temporary tattoos and more.

“Family Art Day is a great opportunity for families to work together on hands-on creative projects,” said Susan Davis, director of special events for the Festival of Arts. “The whole day is designed to introduce kids to different artistic processes and techniques and to encourage them to use their imagination. It’s always one of the most popular events of the summer!”
