Spring Kids Fest at Madison Square Park


On Saturday, May 18, Madison Square Park was transformed into a kid-friendly tent city for our annual Spring Kids Fest. Under cloudy skies (we missed the rain by just minutes!), New York City families danced to performances by hip-hop artist Secret Agent 23 Skidoo and kindie rockers Rolie Polie Guacamolie and gawked as a prehistoric guest from Field Station: Dinosaurs trudged through the crowd (see our video below). At the other end of the park, kiddos learned how to fold paper animals courtesy of Taro’s Origami, played lawn games, jammed with Apple Seeds' Songs for Seeds and more. Families also stopped by our booth to get their little one's picture taken in front of our jumbo cover. Scroll through the slide show, above, to spot your crew—albeit with painted faces—or to find out what you missed. In that case, we hope to see you at our next Kids Fest!
