Giant Magnet celebrates 25th International Children’s Festival
For twenty-five years Giant Magnet has been bringing the world to Seattle children via the International Children’s Festival featuring art and cultural performances from all over the globe.
This year’s festival begins on May 10 and continues through May 14 at the Seattle Center and then heads to the Broadway Center for the Performing Arts in Tacoma May 16.
The exciting events this year include three companies from China brought to the Northwest via a special partnership with China’s Ministry of Culture, music from Ecuador and India, puppets from Tasmania, and a variety of performers from the US.
Hands on activities for kids at the Arts and Crafts studio located in the Seattle Center Northwest rooms include projects to make an Ecuadorian rainstick, an Indian beaded bracelet, a Chinese Face Changing mask, and Japanese origami. Kids can head outdoors for hula hooping and bouncy balls, always a good time. And still there’s even more so plan ahead to be there.
