Neighboring Bartram Park is the site of the Children’s Arts Festival with gobs of great art projects for kids to get their hands on, all provided free of charge, including face painting, clay play, a flower shop, button creations, sand art, sidewalk art, and a balloon man. There will be glitter, glue, sequins and the like for children to make things like masks, crowns, magic wands, and jewelry. The Children’s Festival is open Friday for children with special needs from selected schools and is open to everyone on Saturday and Sunday.
Also in Bartram Park is the Student Art Show which showcases the talents of both private and public school students of Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties. Over 2,000 pieces of art from elementary, middle and high school students will be on display.
