Plenty of activities for children at festival
There will be old favorites and new fun to be had at the youth festival portion of the Flowertown Festival this year. Brinkley Entertainment will again provide rides at South Main Street and 6th Street. Purchase tickets at the ticket booth in the middle of the road: $1 per ticket; $12 for 14 tickets; or $20 for 30 tickets. Rides cost between three and five tickets. American Train Company’s mini electric train will be giving rides as the Flowertown Express. Tickets are $4 each, with children under age 2 riding free with an adult. New this year, Bottles ‘n Brushes will be offering a free 25-minute painting instruction to children. “Just come by the Bottles ‘n Brushes tent and create a mini-masterpiece,” said CEO Alyssa Maute. Maute said they’ll be showing step-by-step children how to paint Lowcountry scenes on 5x7 canvases. There will also be information on the company’s summer camps and birthday parties. The booth will be located on a grassy area along Main Street near the driveway to the old Child Care Center of Summerville.
