Orange

on September 28, 2012

“Knock knock!  ”

“Who’s there?”

“Orange”

“Orange who?”

“Orange you going to Orange County this weekend?”……….huh??!!  (was that really bad?)

Two great kid events are happening this weekend and they are both in the OC.  Luckily they are on different days so you can go to both!  On Saturday, Irvine is playing host to the Global Village Festival to celebrate it’s diversity.  How wonderful is that?  The event is taking place at Bill Barber Park from 10 am-6 pm.  There will be a Kids Village with a play area, crafts games and performances.  What a great way to learn about other cultures.

On Sunday is the OC Children’s Book Festival at Orange Coast College from 9:30 am-4:30 pm.  Many of you and your family’s favorite authors and illustrators will be there such as the author of Fancy Nancy, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, etc.  How awesome would it be to hear the author of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom read you the story he wrote?!   There will be lots of entertainment for children including Sid the Science Kid performing onstage.  On top of all this, there will be an Animal Stage, a Petting Zoo, and even free train rides.  Parking and admission are both free.

Hope you’ll be able to get out and enjoy one of these events.  Have a great weekend!
