“The future of Midtown Houston arts, culture and innovation rests in the hands of our community’s youth,” said Cynthia Alvarado, Operations Manager of Midtown Management District. “Because of this, it’s essential that we find big and small ways of supporting the integration of rising digital culture through fun and inspiring events like our upcoming Children’s Performance Art Festival.”

The festival’s theme of art and science integration will be demonstrated through kids interactive stations designed to stimulate creative thinking and new perspectives. There will be an interactive Instagram Cube created by Exquisite Details by Raquel, giant coloring book panels and a Selfie Wall by artist Anat Ronen. Additionally, Lee’s Golden Dragon will perform a dragon dance and kids will be able to record sounds to make a song played at the festival thanks to Just Add Beats. Kids will use portable sound recorders to capture natural sounds at the park then engineers will put the sounds together for a produced "Midtown Park" song. KICPOPS will be on site to provide refreshing popsicles to keep guests cool.
