Children's Activities

Drum Circles
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Drumming adds energy to the area. Most folks gravitate toward the sound. . . and there is something about a big drum or bell or gong that most can’t resist. They want to hear how it sounds.

Bongo Willie's drum circle will be available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday.

In case of inclement weather, this attraction will move to a store front across from What’s Cooking.

*Paid for via a local grant from the Camden Wal-Mart.
