If you have never brought your kids down to enjoy the FREE children’s area, you should really stop by and check it out!

You can start at the Kalamazoo Astronomy Club and learn how to use their telescopes and find out fun facts about the sky!! Then head over to the balloon artist to watch him make your favorite pink poodle from a couple of simple balloons. Then on to the Crafts tent where Tracy, our Children’s Area Coordinator, will give you all the supplies you need to make the craft of the day! The odd sounds coming from the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra tent may entice you over to try your hand at playing any of the amazing instruments set out for hands on learning with the instrument ‘petting zoo’. Then you can wander next door to the REAL petting zoo and check out some fun and friendly animals from the local 4H groups. Don’t forget to stop by the face painting booth and have a local art teacher paint a perfect butterfly or baseball on your cheek!! If you get a chance, we also feature a bounce house, arts and crafts from a local church, and a talented caricaturist!

The Children’s Area is designed for kids ages 12 and under and everything is FREE!!

In addition to all that the Children's Area has to offer Borgess Helmets sets up a booth to help you find the appropriate sized bike helmet at a low cost!
