"May the fourth" be with you

10 a.m., Saturday, May 4

Join us for the first Story Time with the Princesses of 2019. Presented in conjunction with Dreams Do Come True Princess Parties, every month we’ve shared a magical morning with a different Princess. This month is "May the Fourth" Be With You with the Star Wars characters.

Along with the story and pictures with the characters, we’ll have princess cookies for the little ones.

Following Story Time, face painters will be here until noon courtesy of Dan Klepper’s Fantasy Face Artistry.
