Worried about the first Saturday in April not exactly being a day for little ones (unless your household is training a fleet of junior Olympians)? Fear not. On the eve of the run, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., the largest free family festival in Charleston will be held at Hampton Park.
The Kids Run and Wonderfest has it all: live music, toy giveaways, a doggie fashion show, and a magic act. Wonder Works will be giving free toys to every child in attendance while supplies last and they will also have a toy village featuring toys from the nation's top companies including the Charleston-made sensation Swurfer.
There will be musical performances by Southbound 17 and the Lauren Hall Band, a magic show by Caleb Alexander, and, for the first year there will be a Doggie Fashion show for the Lowcountry's trend-setting pooches.
