Say hello to the many mascots that will be roaming the Festival this year!
The Lost Toys: Set adrift when their train car derailed somewhere in Eastern Europe, the Clockwork Jarquin and Mari wander the world seeking their makers. With only each other to rely on, they charm audiences with an array of tricks. Whether dancing, juggling, flipping hats, or just clowning around, this pair of not-quite-humans is sure to draw looks of amazement!
Kingdom of the Exceedingly Tall Stilt Circus!
The Children’s Parade is a highlight every year. Walk in the parade or cheer on the children as they participate. This year’s theme is “Our World of Imagination”. To learn more about the parade, click here.
