Laughter League, a non-profit organization, will present the inaugural Dallas International Children’s Festival. Celebrating the diverse cultural heritage of Dallas, youth performers will dance, sing, and drum, performing Afro Brazilian Martial Arts, the storytelling dance of India, tap dancing, and more.
Circus stars from The Petite Palace will perform and give festival-goers tips on how to juggle, spin plates and hang from a trapeze. There will be stilt walkers, musicians, magicians, jugglers, and more throughout the festival.
Festival-goers will have a chance to create masks, test their juggling skills in the circus area, see what it feels like to be a part of a drum circle, and have a chance to show their strength at the exciting Ninja Warrior obstacle course with demonstrations by special guest and America Ninja Warrior finalist Grant McCartney, the Island Ninja.
