26th Annual Children’s Festival with Thomas and Friends
November 9, 2019 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Join Thomas and Friends through two days of fun and adventures! Everything is included in the ticket price. There will be:
Thomas & Friends Sing Along Adventure and Meet & Greet:
Thomas & Friends are pulling into the station. Don’t miss the opportunity to meet the Really Useful Engine and get your photo taken! Join Thomas on a fun-filled, sing along adventure by helping Thomas and Driver Sam plant a garden for Mrs. Topham Hatt! During story time, come on a journey with Thomas, James, and Percy or play with the latest Thomas product! Don’t forget to bring your camera to snap a few photos at the Thomas & Friends photo activity stations!
Texas Children’s Hospital Adventure Depot:
All Aboard for Adventure! Bubble Runners, Mini Go-Karts, Zip-lines, Bungee Jumpers, Inflatable Bumper Cars, Rock Climbing Walls, Obstacles Courses – whew – your kids will wear themselves out exploring, climbing and playing on every inch of Adventure Depot! Then, head over to our double size petting zoo to interact with animals of all kinds. A jammin’, jumpin’, adventurous time!
Occidental Arts District
It’s time to pick up some serious Arts skills! Learn all the essentials of art including line, shape, balance, color, and media. Featuring a special classroom with personal classes by Young Rembrandts, special appearances from Frozen’s Anna & Elsa + theatre enrichment classes with Drama Rocket and so much more. Kids will get a hands-on experience in learning about all of the components of art while creating some of their own. Crafts, drawings and other artistry are just the start of this spectacular exploration of the arts.
The Woodlands Methodist School Toddler Town
Calling all toddlers! Join us at Toddler Town, a “festival-within-a-festival” for our youngest festivalgoers, ages 4 and under. This area will feature storytelling, musical performances, arts and crafts, free exploration, theatre enrichment classes with Drama Rocket and a special toddler inflatable!
Accenture S.T.E.A.M. Station
Full of interactive and educational activities, the Accenture S.T.E.A.M. Station provides every kid with an opportunity to learn in a fun, exploratory environment. We think science is best experienced hands-on – who knows what future scientists, arithmeticians, and engineers will walk through The Pavilion’s gates next! Featuring kid (and parent) favorite Janet’s Planet and a whole slew of adventurous demonstrators and activities (like Little Beakers), this area is not to be missed.
The Pavilion’s Instrument Petting Zoo and beloved Children’s Festival tradition hat-making will make appearances as well!
Strike Truck Crossing
A fan-favorite at Children’s Festival, Touch-a-Truck is coming back bigger and better than ever. Learn about the inner-workings of some of the best trucks, tractors and automobiles that The Woodlands area has to offer. Your kids will love to explore this hands-on experience, tailor-made for the adventurer in each of them. This area wouldn’t be complete without a super-fun journey on The Pavilion Express – a train ride experience full of surprises and joy!
Set your eyes on the sky! Kids can build and decorate their own kites and fly them on the hill. The fun doesn’t stop there – kids can also be outfitted with colorful parachutes and run in our parachute races. These races are a hallmark activity of the festival and are not to be missed! Make sure to check out the photo-op on the hill with our tent in the background – certainly a sight to see. Before leaving the hill, stop to pan for gold and see what treasures you can find!
And, more! And, all of these activities are included in the ticket price! You won’t have to pay extra to enjoy these (or any of the festival’s) awesome adventures.
