Games, treats, and entertainment, all in the fresh air...even grown-ups get giddy at the prospect of a summertime festival or fair. Whether you get excited about strawberries or sand sculptures, ocean creatures or dragon boats, the festive events here are all super kid-friendly and will make for a memorable summer outing. Add one or two of these to your summer agenda of beach, lake, or theme park visits, and get kids jazzed about community, culture, and the great outdoors, all in one great afternoon or evening.
