Children’s Festival on Sunday

The Hollywood Arts Council’s 28th Annual Children’s Festival of the Arts takes place at Paramount Pictures on Sunday, Aug. 11 from noon to 4:30 p.m.

Festivities include a full schedule of performances featuring a variety of music, dance, and entertainment from around the world for all ages. An assortment of art workshops with professional artists will provide children with the opportunity to create their own art pieces as souvenirs. There will be face painters and many other surprises. This is a free event; food and drinks will be available for purchase.

“This wonderful non-commercial event has become a family tradition,” according to HAC president Nyla Arslanian. “People whose parents brought them to the festival are now bringing their kids.”

The Children’s Festival of the Arts is presented by the Hollywood Arts Council, a community-based organization founded in 1978 to promote, nurture, and support the arts in Hollywood. The annual Children’s Festival of the Arts is one of many projects and events presented by the council to enhance the quality of life in the city and promote the arts. The Council’s projects also include Project SOAR (Students Overcoming All Risks), an after school art program presented in Hollywood area elementary schools.

Paramount Studios is located at 5555 Melrose Ave. (between Van Ness Street and Gower Street) in Hollywood. Enter at Bronson Gate, where there will be ample free parking on site.
