“You’re off to great places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, so…get on your way!” Join Fairytale Town as we celebrate Theodor Seuss Geisel’s birthday with popular Seuss-themed hands on activities and crafts. Stop by the Mother Goose Stage for a unique nonstop reading of your favorite colorful, tongue-twisting, rhyming Seuss books! Runaway Stage Productions will also perform excerpts from Seussical, The Musical in the Children’s Theater at 11:15 and 11:45 AM. “From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere.”
