The first 1,000 children in attendance will receive a free book.

Festival Activities include: Children will enjoy free face painting, an arts and crafts tent, meeting storybook characters in the Fantasy Forest, participating in the Storybook Parade, a fire truck, if available, and enjoy the “swappin’ ground” area where children can tell their own stories. Additionally, parents can bring cameras to take photos at the “official” Storybook Photo Spots. Food trucks will be on the property, selling tasty goodies all throughout the day.
