If you’re looking forward to attending the popular weekly outdoor “Fullerton Market,” which returns Thursday, April 7, but don’t know what to do with your children, here’s a suggestion: Take them to the corner – the “Kids’ Korner,” that is.
The Kids’ Korner will offer a variety of fun activities especially designed for children throughout the 2011 market season.
New to Kids’ Korner this year on selected market dates will be those perennial favorites of carnival games – “Goldfish” and “Grab Bag,” presented DM Productions. The games will be offered April 21, May 5, June 15, July 14, Aug. 4, Sept. 8 and Oct. 27, and tickets will range from $2 to $5 per person.
Returning this season will be the always popular “trackless train ride” provided by Train Party Express. The train will be at every market, and tickets are $3 per person, with children 1 and under riding for free.
Other activities each Thursday will include face painting and balloon art provided by Jamie’s Parties. Tickets are $2 per person.
Another popular fixture returning this market season will be the ”Bounce House” provided by ACE Jumpers, and tickets will be $2 per person.
Also offered every other Thursday, starting April 7th, will be special craft projects sponsored by the award-winning Fullerton Museum Center. Fee for the projects will be $3 per child, and will include admission for an adult and child to the museum’s galleries.
Now into its 20th year, Fullerton Market will also feature imported and handmade crafts and apparel, food booths, live entertainment, and the freshest in farm produce.
Fullerton Market will be open from 4-8:30 p.m. Thursdays through Oct. 27 on the Downtown Plaza on Wilshire Avenue, between Harbor Boulevard and Pomona Avenue.
Parking for the market may be found in any of the free downtown lots, or in the parking structures at Wilshire (enter from Harbor); Lemon Street and Chapman Avenue; and in the Transportation Center on Pomona and Santa Fe Avenue.
Further information about Fullerton Market may be obtained by calling the Fullerton Museum Center at (714) 738-6545.
Persons requiring special accommodations to attend the market are asked to notify museum staff prior to coming to the market.
Fullerton Market is sponsored by the Fullerton Parks and Recreation Department.
