“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 Theodor Seuss Geisel’s 115th birthday with 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! And “If you never did, you should. These things are fun, and fun is good.”
