For Kids:
Kids will have their own Quest! Parents may purchase a map to TreasureQuest, a hunt that leads children throughout the festival looking for clues that lead them to "ImagiNation-Where Kids Rule." With their TreasureQuest map in hand, children will enjoy a treasure trove of interactive arts and crafts stations that encourage creativity.

Children may also sign up for special workshops, including Camp WaterColor's wax hand workshop and Meyer Skimboards' custom designed skimboard workshop. The ImagiNation Stage will have family-friendly performances by Seaside Neighborhood School Band, Ohana Institute Bands, 30A Dancewave, Seaside Rep Storytelling and Boxtop Jenkins.
