The Art Silicon Valley fair is a cool fair to begin with, but this year it gets mega-awesome with an exclusive showing of The Hero of Color City, a captivating tale featuring a diverse band of crayons on a mission to protect children’s imaginations everywhere. The fair will also feature The Hero of Color City Kids Center, a on-site playroom for kids 3-13 full of art, games, puzzles, and story telling. Staffed by experienced caregivers, parents can roam the fair and do the “boring” stuff while the kids have fun! Bring your used gently used crayons to the fair and get $1 off every ticket purchased. The crayons go toward the Crayon Collection, serving underprivileged students with arts and supplies. (Note the fair is Oct. 9-12, the kids center will be open on Fri., Sat., and Sun. as listed).
