The Carousel Court area at South Coast Plaza looked like a circus Saturday afternoon. The merry-go-round spun, a dog performed tricks, and young children roamed around with their faces painted as Spider-Man, Hello Kitty and other cartoon favorites. It was the first day of the sixth annual Festival of Children, a monthlong celebration that showcases more than 60 children’s charities. As nonprofit groups set up booths in the surrounding area, kids got an opportunity to relish being kids — and to come away with a few prized mementos.
