Â One Katyite looks back on a great day with her family at the festivalÂ Â Â
This weekend we were looking for something special to do to spend time with our 3 Â½ year old daughter, Avery.Â Since weâ€™re fans of Katy Magazine on Facebook, we saw a few of the posts about the KVPAC Arts for All Festival sponsored by Katy Magazine.Â Avery is just now getting old enough to appreciate everything a festival like this has to offer, so we decided to take her.
We spent about 3 hours at La Centerra, walking around and enjoying the booths.Â We visited the Katy Magazine booth and Avery had a great time dancing to the 60â€™s themed music, but was too shy to get her photo taken.Â Hopefully sheâ€™ll be ready by next year!Â We watched a performance of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe by KVPAC, enjoyed a live band, and participated in many â€œprojectsâ€, as Avery likes to call them.
The entire square of La Centerra was bustling with activity and booths.Â Children were singing karaoke, playing games and petting some lovable dogs.Â There was even a bounce house for jumping!Â
When we first arrived, we did a lap around the booths to take it all in.Â After Avery warmed up to the excitement and after she realized that each booth had something special for her to see or do, she really came alive.Â She was able to make a coffee filter butterfly, a marble-rolled painting, a shaker egg, and a stone tile decoration, among other things.Â She was having so much fun that after every project, sheâ€™d look up at me and beg, â€œIâ€™m not ready to go yet!Â Just one more projectâ€¦ please!â€Â We were an hour late getting home for nap time, but spending such a special day with my daughter was completely worth it!Â I cannot wait for next yearâ€™s Art for All Festival!
What about you?Â Did you get a chance to get out and experience the Art for All Festival?Â What was your familyâ€™s favorite activity?
