2016-10-12 · By Editor
Back by popular demand! The public is invited to enjoy a day of Music, Magic and Muse at the Children’s Fall Harvest Festival on Sunday, October 30, 2016 from 12:00 noon until 4:00 p.m. One of Rancho Los Alamitos’ signature family-oriented programs, the Children’s Fall Harvest festival is a fun-filled event for families with children (toddlers to twelve years of age).
Children (and adults, too!) are encouraged to come in costume for the parade at 2:00 p.m. There will be rousing-good-fun games in the barnyard hosted by Boy Scout Troop 126 and harvest crafts under the eaves of the historic Horse Barn and along the Geranium Walk. Volunteers will be on hand from CSULB Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies to teach kids how to do their own magic tricks.
You won’t want to miss the hilarious and mesmerizing feats of prestidigitation by The Amazing Hito and stand-up comedy magic by Rob Rasner. Free to Be Me Drum Circle will be there with more than 50 handmade drums for kids to experience the spirit-freeing magic of rhythm.
Bring the family to celebrate history and art at beautiful Rancho Los Alamitos. Entertainment includes Main Stage and roving magic acts; performance of juggling, unicycle-riding and stilt-walking clowns by the Jumbo Shrimp Circus; an interactive story-telling of The Empty Pot with David Lewis; a variety of arts and crafts projects emphasizing Color is Magic and more.
Free parking will be at CSULB, Lot 11A, on Palo Verde Avenue with continuous, handicap accessible shuttle service to the Rancho. Refreshments available at reasonable cost. Free Admission.
Support for this program is provided by Port of Long Beach, Supervisor Don Knabe, The Deborah B. Green Foundation, Donna and Frank Skinner, Melissa’s Produce, Art Supply Warehouse, Rancho Los Alamitos Foundation and Volunteers.
