MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – Join Broadway at the Beach for the 15th Annual KidzTime Festival on Saturday, February 20th from 11am to 4pm. This year’s event will be held on the 21st Avenue North side of Broadway at the Beach near Pavilion Park West and WonderWorks, just look for the giant circus tent! Admission is FREE as well as most of the activities. Matt Gittins from WBTW and Lance Stephens, Broadway at the Beach’s Spokeskid, will be hosting the event!
Several new activities have been added for 2016, including the Game Truck Party where kids can play various video games; pony rides from 5 Star Farms; and craft painting with Innovations Artists’ Emporium. Thundering into the festival at 11:30 a.m. and staying until 3:30 p.m. is Marvel Comics Superhero THOR. His electrifying special visit (sponsored by Time Warner Cable) will give kids an opportunity to get up close and personal with the comic book and movie hero.
When not meeting THOR, children can participate in a variety of kid-friendly games and interactive activities. A stage inside a large, circus-style tent will be the place to see live performances provided by Broadway at the Beach and WBTW spokeskid, Lance Stevens; the Johnny Rockets dancers; and Ripley’s Aquarium’s RUCKUS. There will even be a fashion show from Sparkles, featuring Mini Starz & The Character Company.
Again this year, Broadway is delivering five hours of rollicking, energy-burning fun, with mascot appearances, face painting, spin art, and even some sparkly nail painting. The popular petting zoo and trackless train rides are back, and there will also be a fire engine on display, along with spin-to-win wheels, and bouncy houses.
