There is no shortage of fun activities for young festival-goers to do this year.

As usual, there are children’s and tweens’ areas for the festival’s younger attendees, with plenty of opportunities for the young crowd to have some fun.

There will be a special movie night Friday evening in the children’s area, with “The Incredibles” playing at dusk.

On Saturday, the Children’s Parade is at 10:30 a.m. on Harbour Pointe Boulevard, just before the Grand Parade.

From 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, there will be a toymaker in the kids area.

From 2 to 7 p.m., kids will have the opportunity to see Vuelta La Luna.

Vuelta La Luna (to turn the moon) is an aerial variety circus that consists of aerialists, clowns, stilt walkers, LED/fire flow toys, music, and more.

Kreative Mndz Dance will be there from 3 to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, and are back from 2 to 2:30 p.m. on Sunday as well.

Irish Dance School and The Son of The Reptile Man will be there in the early evening/late afternoon on Saturday, and Taekwondo Way will be in the kids area from 7 to 8 p.m. Saturday night.

The band Breakneck Love will perform in the tweens area from 8 to 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, and then again after the fireworks. They will be the only band performing in the tweens area as there is no Battle of the Bands this year.

The fun continues on Sunday, as the annual Animal Encounter Petting Zoo returns. It will be open all day on Sunday.

This year marks a first for the Lighthouse Festival, as the first Princess and Prince Tea Party by the Sea takes place from 1:30 to 3 p.m. on Sunday right next to the Lighthouse.

The tea party is open to all ages and includes a unicorn or pony ride for all children 12 and under (140 pound weight limit). Tickets for the tea party are $40.

For those unable to attend the tea party, there will be pony and unicorn rides from 3 to 4 p.m. in the children’s area.

Throughout the festival, there will be also be juggling acts, arts and crafts, face painting, bouncy houses, a climbing wall, rides, The Parrot Lady, knockerball, commonly referred to as “bubble soccer,” and more.

There will be some food vendors in the tweens area, but not in the children’s area.
