In partnership with our sponsors South Lane Mental Health, Territorial Seed Company & Mountain Rose Herbs, our elaborate Kids' Zone uses an Alice in Wonderland theme to create multiple experiences that includes a rabbit hole entrance that “shrinks” visitors to walk through a “keyhole door” into a tea party with a 33 ft long table! Kids will plant seeds of inspiration and explore their interests and passions in the “Mind Marketplace” before exiting onto the playground. Look for the colorful tie-dyed walls in Bohemia City.
