COSTA MESA — Kids, not ready to say goodbye to your summer vacation? Although school is about to start, South Coast Plaza is offering a month-long festival that will have you believing it's still summer.
The Festival of Children started Friday but kicks off in earnest this weekend.
Centered around the Carousel Court and Jewel Court at South Coast Plaza, each weekend itinerary is full of things to do, such as arts & crafts hosted by the Bowers Museum, face painting by Tickled Pink, storytelling time by Orange County High School of the Arts and performances by the Orange County Children's Theatre and Maple Youth Ballet.
All proceeds from the event, which ends Sept. 26, benefit more than 80 children's charities, such as the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Kids Konnected.
