A long-cherished celebration comes to life Saturday, April 30, as the Springs Preserve hosts its annual Día del Niño (“Children’s Day”) event. Celebrated worldwide at various times throughout the year, notably in countries such as Mexico, Día del Niño is all about the little ones.
The family-friendly celebration will feature an exhibit of art by internationally-renown Latino artists, as well as art workshops, cooking demonstrations, and live music and entertainment on two stages.
A petting zoo and face painting, along with magicians and plenty of great food, also are planned.
The Springs Preserve Día del Niño event is made possible in part by generous support Station Casinos, Smith’s Food & Drug, and Telemundo. For more information about this and other Springs Preserve special events and programs, visit springspreserve.org.
