Family fun on tap at Snowmass

Aspen Times Staff Report

There will be no lack of fun for kids this weekend during the annual Children and Family Festival on the Snowmass Village Mall.

The festival is Saturday and Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. It will feature a broad range of events that the whole family should enjoy, including free performances by musicians, clowns, jugglers, magicians, puppeteers and storytellers. Most of the events will take place on the main stage, located in the Snowmass Ticket Pavilion.

Some of the highlights of this year’s festival include Kathleen Gibson, an award-winning vocalist, who will perform at noon and 4 p.m. both days. Storyteller Denise Berry will tell stories on Saturday and Sunday. Local clowns Hinton, Buttons, and Giggles will entertain people throughout the weekend. Eddie Goldstein, from the Denver Museum of Natural History, will present his show, “How Animals Walk,” a highly interactive audience pleaser that is educational as well as fun.

The Rocky Mountain Martial Arts School will put on a demonstration at 2 p.m. Saturday. The Tower Restaurant Magic Bar will host an all-star lineup of magicians from across the country. The shows begin at 9 p.m. on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Last summer’s surprise hit, the Petting Zoo, will be back to provide kids of all ages an opportunity to interact with a variety of small animals.
