Children’s Events at Hawthorne Street Fair


Kids at Heart Toys proudly presents the children’s events for the 2015 Hawthorne Street Fair! For the past 8 years Kids at Heart Toys has had the pleasure of providing this kid-centric part of the already fantastic Street Fair. They love to give back to the community that supports them, and this year they have SE 35th Avenue and their back parking lot dedicated to bringing you the best children’s entertainment and activities!

On the Main Stage they’ll be featuring great entertainment for the whole family. Two of Portland’s most beloved children’s musicians, Mr. Ben and Lorna Miller, will invite you on their musical adventures, where all can sing and dance along. Then, Penny’s Puppet Productions will present not one, but TWO amazing puppet shows! Portland’s favorite clowns, Olive & Dingo, will take the stage with their wonderful antics, and Circus Cascadia joins the fun with a fantastic array of events: juggling demos, tightrope walking, balance balls, stilt lessons, and clown skits!

Besides the Stage shows, the event will feature activities all day on SE 35th Avenue and in the back parking lot. They’ll have a refreshing misting tent and dedicated sidewalk chalk area. Plus, we (Metro Parent-PDX Kids Calendar) will be set up with a prize wheel and photo booth, and face painters will be at the ready to beautify all those little faces!

Perhaps most important of all, to ease all those weary feet, tables & chairs for resting and eating will be available.

Outside the store on Hawthorne is the annual Kids at Heart Sidewalk Sale, with amazing deals on some of their favorite toys and books! Then, don’t forget to stop in the shop and fill out a ticket – they’ll have a drawing for you to win gift certificates to the store!

It’s our best Street Fair yet, and we are so excited to share it with all of you! See you then!
