A bounty of adventure awaits as kids and their families make plans for family fun times on Saturday, May 5, 2018, from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., when Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show presents the 14th Annual Imagination Library Kid’s Festival.
“It’s always exciting when a community embraces a program like Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library and takes it to the next level to impact children and their families,” said David Dotson, President of The Dollywood Foundation. “This event takes on even more significance this year because the 100 millionth Imagination Library book was donated in late February to the Library of Congress. Currently we have over 7,700 children enrolled in the Horry County branch of the Imagination Library.”
The festival offers more than just pirates’ treasure for children and families to enjoy. From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., festival participants will have the opportunity to interact with a variety of characters from Pirates Voyage and even have a chance to see many of the performers from the show throughout the day showing off – displaying their many talents such as juggling and balancing on a rolling “plank.”
Members of the Sapphire and Crimson Pirates will pose for pictures, as well as sign autographs for attendees and help local children sign up for the Imagination Library.
“Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a special program that is very near and dear to our hearts here at Pirates Voyage. One of my favorite aspects of the Imagination Library Kid’s Festival is having our area business partners, law enforcement, fire and rescue, and many other friends and neighbors join in with us to provide a free family event that offers information on important topics in an entertaining way,” said Paul Brown, General Manager at Pirates Voyage.
This event includes a best dressed pirate costume competition for children in two different age groups (0-5 years and 6-12 years) with fantastic prizes for the winning buccaneers. Also featured are sing-alongs and instructions on how to talk like a pirate!
Come enjoy this adventure and visit all the stops on the treasure map experience through the event.
