The KidsFest building is transformed into a fun carnival atmosphere for this activity. Children can enjoy crazy carnival games while dining on boardwalk treats like funnel cakes, corn dogs and cotton candy. They will have a grand ole time and might walk away with a prize, or two.
First-time guests are encouraged to visit the KidsFest Open House every Wednesday and Friday from 5-6 pm to learn about all the offerings.
