Summer’s almost over, but The Parks Mall at Arlington says there’s still time for some fun when Kids Kamp hosts an end-of-summer carnival on Thursday, August 20. Like an old-fashioned county fair, the shopping center will be packed with all sorts of silliness. There will be mascots, jugglers tossing and twisting, artists painting faces or making balloon creatures and so much more. There will even be a special performance by the Ramazini’s clowns at 11:30 a.m.
The fun starts at 11 a.m. and the first 150 children to check in on the lower level in Center Court near Guest Services will receive a goodie bag filled with little kid-style surprises, plus coupons and samples from The Parks Mall at Arlington retailers.
At 11:30 a.m., guests will be treated by a special performance by The Ramazini’s, a pair of traveling clowns who performed with Ringling Bros. Circus. The Ramazini’s show will feature a little bit of everything expected from clowns – pantomime, slapstick, contortions, magic, juggling, acrobatics and music, too! There’s no charge to see the performance; it’s all part of the Kids Kamp fun.
Center Court will be brimming with activities and rocking with music. Kids can stop by and have their faces painted. A balloon artist will be giving away colorful balloons that have been twisted into works of art and cute animals. Jugglers will amaze you with their feats of balance, tossing multiple objects with ease. Kids can have their pictures taken with some of their favorite mascots, including Bearemy from Build-A-Bear Workshop, Chick-fil-A Cow and Cookie Man from Great American Cookie.
Along with all the fun in Center Court, retailers throughout The Parks Mall at Arlington will host activity stations where little ones can enjoy more fun with special kid-style games. A special stop will be hosted by Round 1, the fun new entertainment venue at the center. At the Round 1 station, larger-than-usual bowling pins will invite kits to step up to the UFO crane catcher game machine and win prizes.
