Fun for the Entire Family
As always we structure the festival with activities for the entire family to enjoy. The kids will have as much fun as the parents. Our petting zoo and pony rides have been a favorite for years. The amazing EuroBungy trampoline flings you 25ft in the air as you jump and flip on the inflated trampolines. The extreme air power jump, truly gives you the sensation of being weightless. It's 100% safe and 200% fun. Experience the adrenaline rush of a bungee jump, as you perform gravity-defying moves. There is face painting, jewelry making, sand art and much more to keep them busy.
