No more summer boredom for your kids. The I aRt Festival runs July 20-21, 2013, at the Marquee of Redford Township.
There are tons of art projects for kids of all ages – including sculpting, origami, rain sticks and much more! The fest also boasts a Story Porch where your little ones can hang out and hear a story told by local storytellers. Or they can check out the bubble tubs, painting easel or sidewalk chalk.
