It was advertised as a cultural event with food, dancing, and tons of games and fun for the kiddos - face painting, inflatables, and a petting zoo. But we got there... and it totally wasn't what we were expecting. There was food that smelled amazing and the dance performances were really neat. But we were disappointed with the kid selection left something to be desired. Sure, there was face painting, but most of the activities seemed aimed at older kids - ring toss, bean bag throw, archery, and other carnival-type games. There was one little bouncy house that was packed to the brim, mostly with older kids. I can only assume that the petting zoo we saw advertised was misinformation.
There was a little train, which Em (and her buddy, O, who went with us) got really excited about. "Dada... train! Dada, TRAIN!"
But then we heard an announcement they would be handing out "powder" in ten minutes. So we decided to hang around a few more minutes to check it out.
Oh. my. gosh. Best decision ever. We had so much fun! Em was in heaven. Such bright colors! Such fun music! So many nice people! Allowed to get messy!
