Enjoy the 2015 McDonald’s Houston Children Festival
The Houston Children's Festival began in 1988. The extravaganza was initiated with the objective of establishing a family festival as a platform to create awareness about prevailing child abuse. The event was formerly known as “Children for Children” Festival. While the initial reception for the event was muted, the noble cause was well received during subsequent years. The festival has been featured in Frommer’s travel guide.
In 2015, McDonald’s will be celebrating the twenty-seventh anniversary of the festival. The event provides high-quality family entertainment and an exceptional platform to advocate against child abuse. The festival is the largest children festival in America.
What can you expect from the event
The event has five main stages of entertainment and nine adventure zones. Area 1 will feature TMNJ. It will also include a petting zoo. Area 2 will be dedicated to thrill-rides and magic. Area 3 focuses on circus, acrobats, pirates and fun-under-the-sea in a bounce house.
Area 4 will be the center of attraction and is tagged as Dream Discovery zone. The area will be filled with Disney music stars and Minions from the motion pictures. Area 5 will feature a giant slide and museum. Area 6 will host foods. Area 7 will promote pediatrics care. All proceedings from the event will be donated to Child Advocates charity.
