The San Diego Pride Festival will see more than 200,000 people join in all the festivities over a three-day period and many of those are not only kids at heart but have kids of their own. On Saturday, July 14 and Sunday, July 15 Families at The Center is hosting its annual Children's Garden for pint-sized revelers 13 and under. 

This is a great experience for kids who want to feel like a part of Pride, they can have fun with face painting, hat making, get balloon art and do arts and crafts and much more with their parents over the weekend. There's also a playhouse giveaway. All this fun can build up quite an appetite, so kids summer favorites will be at hand including hot dogs, popcorn, snow cones, and other snacks in a private family-only shaded oasis with tables, chairs, and restrooms. 

Your ticket purchase to the festival includes access to five stages of the best entertainment with even more workshops and fun activities brought to you by other community partnership organizations. Plus kids under 14 are free. 

Please check out Families at The Center program page for resources and more events!
