Children's Festival 2014

img-3013.jpgOur Annual Children’s Festival is one of the biggest events of the year.

The campus is filled with fun games & activities for children of all ages!

I especially love seeing the campus covered in sidewalk chalk.

img-3032.jpgimg-3020.jpgAs you can see in the photo above, there was a magic show!

It was so much fun to see the audience participate in the show!

img-3069.jpgThe magician was very clever!

He could make a fork bend in half!

img-3071.jpgimg-3072.jpgAfter the magic show I made my way to the plaza to check out the games.

img-2999.jpgimg-3006.jpgimg-3024.jpgThe “Angry Veggies” game was a crowd favorite. Modeled after the popular digital game, “Angry Birds,” the children tossed the “Angry Veggies” at the blocks. If they knocked over any blocks they received a prize!

img-2997.jpgHorticulture was in the plaza giving away pepper plants!

img-3002.jpgimg-3005.jpgBefore selecting a plant, each child decorated a bag to carry it home in.

img-3004.jpgThe fun didn’t stop there!

Traditional games tournaments were taking place down in the Traditional Village.

img-3077.jpgThe stickball shootout tournament looked very difficult! Each team was comprised of two players. 

img-3098.jpgThe object of the game was to hit the pole with the stickball ball.

img-3092.jpgOf course, players could only toss the ball using their stickball sticks.
