We are wrapping up the last weekend of February with a super-sized dose of family fun!  For starters, we have a magical party with Moon Fairies, a practice run around the International Fountain, and the chance to win a basket full of prizes. We also have a super-fun make believe camp, a fab celebration inside Bell Square, and a carnival with tons of fun for the Littles. If you need a rock n’ roll fix this weekend, we have several concerts going on around the city including The Board of Education, Caspar Babypants, and Joe Reilly.
