What Wee Folks Island offers…
This year Wee Folks Island turns into the British Isles! Our wee visitors can explore a number of Celtic cities and countries and activities or events that happen(ed) there. Wee folks can play a round of wee golf at the St. Andrews Wee Golf Course in Scotland, make fairy crowns while exploring the green hills of Ireland, play games at the English Carnival area, or Defeat the Dragon that is terrorizing Brecon, Wales, Saline’s Sister City! Princess Merida will be back in DunBroch, Scotland, telling stories and helping kids find the sneaky will-o-the-wisps. We’ll also be painting swords and shields, but new viking-style swords and targe (round) shields! We’ll have our ducky races along the “Thames” with new and fun prizes for each race! Prizes will also be available to those kids who get a stamp in every city on their Celtic passport. Each area will have an informational sign telling about the history of the city – school may be out, but we can still have fun learning new things together!
New this year! Music workshop with Steel City Rovers!!
