5 Reasons Parents Should Hop Over To The Spring Family Fun Fest

The flowers are blooming…the air is warm…and the kids are still in school. It must be SPRING! CityPlace’s FREE Family Fun Fest is the can’t-miss spring event on Sunday, April 9. Here are a few reasons parents should jump at the chance to attend:

Reason 1: Egg decorating — without the mess

Easter egg coloring is fun, but it sure is a lot of work. You need to buy the right supplies, boil the eggs, make the dye, spread the newspapers, and clean up afterwards. Needless to say, it’s a process. The egg decorating booth at Family fest is equipped with foam stickers and egg coloring sheets. Simply send the kiddos to the booth and let them go crazy with creativity, sans-mess.

Reason 2: Activities that’ll tucker them out

Moms and Dads, let’s be real: the goal of daytime activities is to get them worn out by bedtime. Between the bounce houses and running around from craft stations to face painting to Storybook Village and more, you’ll be guaranteed ZZZs in the car ride home. Cue sighs of relief.

Reason 3: Photo Ops

We know how you are; your phone is constantly telling you “Storage Full” due to the excessive amount of photos you take of your darling children. It’s simply out of love! Bring the camera, dress them in their Sunday best, and watch how big the grins grow when they see the Easter Bunny himself.

Reason 4: Entertainment

Everyone knows the party is on the Plaza. During Family Fun Fest, there will be performers, games and entertainment that will surely keep the party going. This technically also fits under reason #2 and #3, because while the little ones get tired, you’ll get the BEST home videos.

Reason 5: Dining Options

The restaurant choices at CityPlace are abounding, and while many of these establishments have kids menus, that does not mean parents have to settle for chicken fingers and French fries. Choose Brother Jimmy’s BBQ if you’re hankering for some delicious barbecue, Cabo Flats for Mexican, or Mellow Mushroom for a safe choice…pizza! Head over to CityPlace before the fest to grab brunch at City Tap House, Blue Martini, or Copper Blues. Treat the team to sweets at Sloan’s, Le Macaron, or Tutti Frutti! Yum.
