Kids Play Land
Children’s Play Land – The children will enjoy their adventure at the popular Play Land, an area on the festival grounds that has the atmosphere of a Fair complete with face painting, wax hands, caricatures, games and more. Play Land has been expanded with new rides and activities including the popular Swing Ride, Tubs of Fun Ride, Tijuana Twister Ride, Helicopter Ride, Children's Ferris Wheel, Atlantis, Jurassic Adventure and Slide. Play Land would not be complete without children's goodies of popcorn, cotton candy and snow cones, which can be enjoyed on the front lawn of the festival grounds.
Culture for Kids
Playland isn’t the only attraction for our young visitors. The Yiasou Greek Festival also offers cultural fun for children of all ages. Visit The Warriors of Greece Room where battle scene dioramas, statues, armor, weapons and movies are sure to capture their attention. You can also take a picture with a Spartan Warrior. The Spartans have been a crowd favorite for years. You won’t want to miss them!
