Children's Activities

*Sponsored by Walmart Local Store Grant

Drum Circles
10:30 AM - 12:30 PM
3:00 PM - 5:00 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.

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.
