2012 Kid-Friendly Activities!
Children's Discovery Museum
The Children's Discovery Museum will be joining in the fun, frolic and festivities of the Morton Pumpkin Festival this year! Stop by their booth on the Main Festival Grounds to craft your very own Candy Pumpkin Catapult. Visitors to the Children's Discovery Museum booth will build a catapult using recycled materials, a lever, and power it with a rubber band. Then, participants will test their design and send a pumpkin candy flying through the air! Who will launch theirs the farthest? If you would like to learn more about the Children's Discovery Museum, please visit their website at www.ChildrensDiscoveryMuseum.net.
Join us for the award winning children's singer Julie K on Friday from 4:30 - 5:30 on the Main Entertainment Stage. Through her eclectic mix of playful melodies and family-friendly lyrics, kids and parents alike will be singing, dancing, and having fun!
