The Children’s Area is a dedicated safe space for children and their LGBTQ parents/caregivers/family/friends. Historically, it has featured bouncy houses, pony rides, storytimes, rides, games, a fire engine, and a photo booth. Visit their website for updates as details are finalized. We will update this article when we get more info.
