Cary hosts kids’ fest

April 10, 2017 by  

Families in the Cary area are getting excited for the 2017 Children’s Day Festival.

Sponsored by the American Turkish Association of NC and the Sister Cities of Cary, the all-day event features music, food, and dancing.

Flyers bill the fest as a celebration of the next generation as well as the colorful tapestry of culture in the Cary area. As such, a broad array of groups will be performing including the Motley Tones, a pirate-themed children’s band, the Bollywood-styled Indigo Dance Academy, the Ruby Slippers Chinese Dance Club, and the local Academy of Irish Dance. At one point, children will learn a line dance and be able to sing along with the music.

In addition to the music and dancing, a lot of entertainment is available to families. A craft make and take table will be set up with a variety of different crafts. Children will be able to get a balloon animal or have their faces painted. Food trucks will also be on site offering a variety of cuisines, and the festival will have an international dessert table.

The Children’s Day Festival will be held on April 22 from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm at the Sertoma Amphitheatre, located a Fred G. Bond Metro Park at 801 High House Rd. Admission is free, and more info is available on the website.
