Located between the Midway and the Food Court, the Family Fun Center has become a can’t-miss attraction at the Fair. With stage shows, interactive exhibits, contests, and a free-play area, there is always something fun to do under the FFC pavilion! It also features bonus activities, like “Harry the Cat’s Messy Play Zone” (Saturday, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.), and Inflatables (Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday afternoons) in the grassy area next-door.
Top picks –
Princess and Super Hero Dance Party (Thursday, 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.) Kids LOVE this event, and who can blame them? It’s the best way to visit with the cast from Dream Time Princess Events and get posed photos, along with some action shots. The playlist will include plenty of sing-along favorites, so make sure you come with your dancing shoes AND your air-microphone!
Mad Science (Friday, 3:00 – 7:00 p.m.) – Children love the stage shows from Mad Science. This year, we have “Fire and Ice,” featuring Foggy dry ice storms, giant beach balls floating in the air and even a special Mad Science “burp” potion will amaze children as they learn about chemical reactions, air pressure and the states of matter. Shows are at 3:00 and 6:30 p.m., and in between there is a Make and Take your own Slippery Slime booth!
Fairy with Enchanted Wagon – NEW for 2017, we’re excited to welcome a fairy with a giant enchanted turtle to the fairgrounds. You can find the pair strolling around the grounds Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Get a closer look when the turtle stops to rest – the gypsy wagon on its back has hidden treasures like magic bubbles, fairy dust, kaleidoscopes and bells. The fairy and turtle will also be on stage in the Family Fun Center 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Michaels Crafts – Do you wish your kids could express their craftiness without leaving the mess in your home? We’re happy to provide just such an opportunity! Employees from the Washington Michaels store will be on hand for four hours each day with supplies and directions for children to complete a project right there at the Family Fun Center!
