Behind-the-Scenes: America’s Kids

Our Creative team is hard at work building exhibits for the Fair. We stopped by their office this morning to say hello and take a look at what they have planned for America’s Kids this year. Take a look!

One work station is dedicated to bringing childhood stories to life. Peter Rabbit’s carrots, our friends from Make Way For Ducklings and giant-size books are all part of our Adventures in Literature theme.

The America’s Kids office is lined with fun costumes, Fair memorabilia, and props (like these awesome Truffula Trees!)

Stay tuned for additional behind-the-scenes blogs for all our exhibits!
