The Family Area at Arts in the Heart, located on the North Side of the 700 block of Broad street, is full of interactive fun for kids and adults alike! Local organizations provide craft activities and games that are great for the whole family. There’s even a scavenger hunt that families can play to win prizes in the activity booths! Keep an eye out for fun interactive street performers, too, as they entertain visitors with exciting acts in fun costumes! Make sure to check out the Young Artist’s Market while you’re there, too!
