Silver Dollar City used to hold a festival for kids that typically started in the beginning of June and ran for approximately 6 weeks. The festival was filled with various cartoon characters (Sponge Bob for example) and prime entertainers (Harlem Globetrotters)
It was an ideal time for the parents of little ones as the heat was never an issue and kicked off a great time for the summer.
Without any explanation the management of SDC decided to cancel Kids Fest and change it over to Star Spangled Summer – which quite frankly – has been a complete dud.
Don’t get me wrong, I love patriotism as much or more than most people, but for little ones there is more excitement meeting your favorite cartoon characters than bunting decorating the area in red, white, and blue. In other words, it just doesn’t connect.
