Lakeland, FL (April 5, 2017) Awaken your five senses and spend Saturday, April 8 from 10am to 3pm at Exploration V’s Children’s Musical Festival. With performances from local musicians, a bounce house, hands on activities, free goodie bags and the grand opening of the Music & Sound Studio, there is something for everyone to enjoy at the Children’s Museum. Supported by generous sponsorships from Lakeland Electric and Junior League of Greater Lakeland, the Children’s Musical Festival brings the community together in celebration of childhood.
Kids control the production in the new Music & Sound Studio! They create their own music with wind instruments, rhythm hand bells, maracas, an organ, harp, accordion, an electronic drum set and an electronic piano! They are the masters of the control panel adjusting spot lights, mixing colors, adding sound effects and switching monitors.
Meanwhile the new exhibit flows directly into the newly renovated theater so children will be able to create their own stage productions and sound scores as well! This integration of technology and creativity is made possible by sponsors The George Jenkins Foundation, The Carol and Barney Barnett Fund within the GiveWell Foundation, Lakeland Chamber Foundation and Morrison Foundation.
Located in the heart of Downtown Lakeland, the Children’s Musical Festival incorporates the newest exhibits inside the Museum and gets the family outdoors to enjoy the Florida sunshine and bask in the sights and sounds. Admission is $9/person for general admission and $5/person for Members, Seniors, Teachers & Military families. Children under 2 are FREE and EBT/ACCESS cardholders are $3. Downtown parking will be FREE.
