Just about every major city has some kind of festival during the summer months, and many of them make the perfect destination for an outing like kids. Made entirely out of duct tape, the above dragon was a part of the annual Duct Tape Festival in Ohio last year. Find out what's going on in your city below...
• A great list of kid-friendly festivals from Cookie Magazine including a National Kids Fest in Missourri and a Raspberry Festival in Minnesota.
• Austin, TX has so much going on including 2 of our favorite things: a Chocolate Festival and an Ice Cream Festival!
• Of course, NYC always has a ton of events- many of them free.
• Festivals in Oregon including the Portland Pirate Festival!
If we didn't hit your city, a quick search on Google should lead the way for you! Not only can you hit the festivals in your own neighborhood, but consider planning a vacation around one that really interests you in another city.
