Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry to Host Free Family Festival in Marion Square

The  Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry (CML) has announced their annual Fam Jam will take place on Saturday, November 2, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This free family festival in Marion Square celebrates the power of play and shows children and their parents the importance of staying active and having fun.

Featuring live music, entertainment and hands-on activities, this festival encourages kids to move their bodies and stretch their imaginations. Music by the Electric Company, Peace Love Hip Hop and the Dirty Birds will fill the air and children will be able to participate in special activities including jump castles, a mechanical shark, live turtles from the Turtle Survival Alliance, face painting and much more. Children will also enjoy CML’s beloved exhibits outside of the museum, including their Imagination Playground and Ball Wall which will be installed in Marion Square.

“Fam Jam is a celebration of play for everyone and we are proud to share this free event with the entire community,” says Nichole Myles, executive director of the Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry. “We are thankful for all of our partners that help to make this action-packed day of fun possible.”

Capital Bank is one of more than 40 community partners who are participating to help make this free festival possible and each partner will be providing their own play-based activity.

“At Capital Bank, we take great pride in investing in our communities whether helping with financial needs or through foundation grants,” said Jennifer Schuchart, Market President at Capital Bank. “We are proud to be a sponsor of the 15th annual FAM JAM.”
