Blair Shelby, Director of St. Luke’s Church School will entertain the kids with a sensory art program using the most unbelievable painting tools.

There will also be face painting, various arts and craft tables and the children will be entertained by Cascading Carlos who will amaze them with his juggling skills, while he teaches them how to juggle. He is not a clown or magician, he is a juggler who clowns around and has a lot of illusions in his juggling show. Children will have the opportunity to tour the PWEC Fish mobile and touch a variety of turtles and reptiles. Prizes for the Paint Out will be presented at a 12:30 p.m. Awards Ceremony in the park.
