The Children's Museum of the Lowcountry invites all children and families of the Lowcountry to the 11th Annual FREE FAM JAM Festival on Saturday, September 19 from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. at Marion Square in partnership with the City of Charleston Farmers Market.
CML's FAM JAM festival celebrates the power of play and engages families together as Marion Square becomes a giant playground to provide children and their families with an action-packed day of fun and play! Although sometimes dismissed as "just fun," play is fundamental for children to learn about and interact with their world and gain cognitive, physical and social skills necessary to succeed in their adult lives. At FAM JAM, families will have the opportunity to take part in a series of fun-filled, outdoor activities and play demonstrations; from reaching new heights with pogo bounce balls and step stilts with Magnifilous Toy Emporium and participating in an obstacle course with JumpBunch of Charleston to bouncing in jump castles and scaling a climbing wall.
And that's not all! Families will jam to live music by Electric Company, The Dirty Birds, Peace Love Hip Hop and more. Local community partners will teach children and their grown-ups kung fu, dance and movement, and families can explore the Charleston Farmers Market, too.
Admission is FREE for the event, so bring the whole family! Every family that attends FAM JAM will get FREE admission to CML all day. Annual CML Memberships purchased at the CML Tent in Marion Square or at CML's Front Desk will receive 15 percent off during FAM JAM. For more information, visit CML's website at www.exploreCML.org.
