Riverside Children’s Theatre’s Festival of Trees great for children, Nov. 22-23

VERO BEACH — Riverside Children’s Theatre’s Festival of Trees, Nov. 22 and 23, not only has plenty for parents to see and do but this year more than ever the kids will be busy too.

Many activities are planned for the kids, including a scavenger hunt, crafts, games, face painting and a selfie photo booth.

On stage everyone will be entertained with readings and enactment of favorite children’s books, all part of the “Storybook Forest” theme. Riverside’s RCT “On The Go” actors will perform such favorites as “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and “Polar Express.” Local author Leslie McGuirk will share her book “Ho, Ho, Ho, Tucker.” Santa will be making appearances as well.

Festival hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday. Call the box office at (772)-231-6990 for an entertainment schedule.

One of the most popular family events of the Festival is Breakfast with Santa, this year scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 23 with seatings at 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. The event will feature a full breakfast courtesy of Disney’s Vero Beach Resort, entertainment by vocalist Jonathan Cummings and visits with Santa.

Tickets should be purchased early as this event usually sells out. Breakfast with Santa is made possible through the generosity of Disney’s Vero Beach Resort.

Breakfast tickets include admission to the Festival showcase.

Festival of Trees showcase includes displays of decorated holiday trees, a gingerbread village with train and holiday shopping. All events take place on the Riverside Theatre campus, 3280 Riverside Park Drive, Vero Beach. The Festival of Trees is presented by the Corrigan-Goddard Foundation, Arthur Rutenberg Homes, George E. Warren Corporation, Dorothea Leonhardt Fund of the Community Foundation of Texas, Chelsea’s on Cardinal, Peace River Citrus Products and Disney’s Vero Beach Resort.
