Kids Activities at Gathering on the Green

There will be pony rides, a petting zoo, pop-a-shot basketball, airbrush tattoos, balloon artist, laser tag, face painting, a mega slide, rock climbing wall, and two bounce houses, so all different age groups are sure to have a great time. Please note that the majority of the kids activities will be from 4-8pm, with the mega slide, rock climbing wall, pop-a-shot, belly bouncers, and bounce houses extended until 9pm.

All of the activities and attractions for kids are included in the wristband price of $15 per child ($5 for children 3 and under). You can buy discounted wristbands in advance for the price of $12 per child (ages 4 years old and up) and $5 for children 3 and under until Tuesday, June 13 at 5pm!
