***UPDATE 3/2/18: In the event of heavy rain, park attractions will be closed, but readings will occur in the indoor Children’s Theater and activities will take place inside King Arthur’s Castle free of charge.
“Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.” And there was no one quite like Dr. Seuss! Join Fairytale Town as we celebrate Theodore Seuss Geisel’s 114th birthday with Seuss-themed hands-on activities around the park. Come dressed in your pajamas and enjoy fun literacy-based activities, readings from your favorite children’s books, bilingual storytime, poetry, arts and crafts and more! And “If you never did, you should. These things are fun, and fun is good.”
Books Before Bedtime is free with paid park admission. Weekday admission is $5 for adults and children ages 2 and older. Members and children ages 1 and under are free. Receive 50% off one admission with a donation of one new or gently used children’s book for Reading Partners, a Sacramento non-profit literacy organization.
