Kids Playland Offers Fun For All Ages

The festival is loaded with fun for the whole family. For children, we have a large playland complete with rides, activities and cotton candy. Your older children will love the cultural displays and opportunity to interact with the Spartan warriors.

Playland Activities

Children will enjoy their adventure at the popular Playland, with the atmosphere of a Fair complete with face painting, wax hands, caricatures, games and more. Playland 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.

Playland Rides

Playland 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.
