On Saturday, the family headed down to the World Cultural Festival at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History.  We always try to arrive right at 10AM (or opening time) when we go to events like this.  We were running a bit behind, but we were inside and checked in by 10:15AM.

We’ve been to events like this at the museum before.  They are always well done.

We started out in the photo booth.  Then, volunteers helped get the passports started.  We stopped at some of the booths like this Mexican one (where the kids signed up to hit the piñata).


There was an animal encounter with a opossum.   Nick and Sally made masks.


They made twirling puppets.  These volunteers were so patient with the kids.


They also tried their hand at origami.


Nick picked out Medusa and Sally picked out a lady bug for their face painting.  They both sat so still.


They both took a shot at breaking open the piñata.


After the pinata finally was broke open, we let them each grab three pieces of candy.  It was almost 11:30AM and time for entertainment in the auditorium.  We enjoyed a drumming group and a couple of dancing group.  Then, it was time to head home.  But, Nick was determined to get all 10 stamps in his passport and Stephen helped him accomplish that while I grabbed a snack.  By 12:20AM, we were on the road back home.

It was a great event.  When our kids are older and nap time isn’t such a big deal, it will be even more fun to go to things like this.
