If you know someone between the ages of 2 and 5 years old, you probably know who P.J. Masks are. On Saturday, Sept. 28 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the kiddos in your life will get a chance to see (and maybe even meet) the little mystery-solving heroes in-person. This year’s Famtastical Festival (formerly the Phoenix Children’s Festival) will have a full lineup of family activities, entertainment (including performances by PJ Masks) and themed adventures. It will be a totally kid-centric block party on First Avenue and Washington Street. The event is carefully curated for every age group, with a little something fun for everyone. According to festival organizers, last year’s event attracted nearly 20,000 attendees, and this year is expected to be bigger and better than ever.
Admission is free for kids 12 and under and $5 for adults and children 13 years and older. Game tickets and VIP meet-and-greet opportunities are additional. A portion of the proceeds benefit the Back to School Clothing Drive. Be sure to check out the website for tickets, entertainment lineup and a list of activities.
