3:00pm  Kids Hoop-Making Workshop  

Using black irrigation tubing, colorful tapes, and optional shaker/noisemakers like beads on the inside, children will make their very own hula hoops to take home and keep forever. After making our hoops, we will head out to the Arts in Motion tent for a few minutes to do a quick lesson and/or learn a fun trick or two, or maybe just dance with our hoops to some groovy beats. You can bring your hoops back later that night for our all-ages hoop jam, too. And remember, this is an activity for girls AND boys to enjoy! Participation limited to first 30 kids, and the activity is FREE of charge.

8:00pm All-ages mini-workshop and hoop jam

Come learn some basic hooping techniques at the Arts in Motion tent on Saturday evening at 8pm. If you could never keep the hoop up around your waist– or if you could and are ready to spice it up a bit now– we can help! Then at 8:30pm when The Flow Band takes the stage, feel free to take a hoop to the lawn for the festival’s all-ages hoop jam! We have hoops you can borrow, just return them before you leave.
