The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion is excited to team up with ExxonMobil as the presenting sponsor for the 18th Annual Children’s Festival. The Festival is expected to attract more than 20,000 people from the Greater Houston area. Families and schools are invited to this year’s event taking place Nov. 7-10, 2013.
Children’s Festival showcases children’s activities with a diverse assortment of entertainment that spans from local community acts to today’s top children’s performers like Disney Junior’s Imagination Movers and Zendaya, star of Disney Channel’s hit series “Shake It Up” and finalist on season 16 of “Dancing with The Stars.” Also kids can discover the Disney Doc McStuffins Toy Clinic for stuffed animals and toys.
The Festival is a four-day event with schooldays devoted to field trips and featuring performers who entertain and incorporate important educational lessons into their material.
The weekend is open to the public and features lots of hands-on, interactive activities like face painting, hat-making, arts and crafts, kite flying and parachute races. Kids can visit the Activity Tent, Healthy KidZone, ExxonMobil STEM Zone, Anadarko Adventure Zone and the Wells Fargo Fun Zone. The ExxonMobil STEM Zone includes the Children’s Museum of Houston exhibit and an inflatable Big Canyon that enables kids to explore earth sciences.
With ExxonMobil’s support, The Pavilion is expanding the number of school children attending the Festival on Nov. 7 and 8.
