Kids Zone

The kids will be over the moon playing at the Li'l Shrimp Kids Zone, which features inflatables, creative activities, healthy tastings and a kid-friendly menu when hunger strikes.

But there's even more in store for kids this year! First, there's the Deering Discovery Cove Adventure, with fun, educational programming that incorporates interactive event stations with microscopes, dissections, touch tanks and art, all geared to teaching the importance of the world's oceans.

These activities highlight the Deering Estate's ongoing, hands-on Environmental Education Programs and Camps that serve more than 17,000 children annually.

In addition, there are activities for children unique to each of the world's oceans:

  • Children will get to experience squid adaptation and lionfish dissection (Atlantic Ocean)
  • A hands-on lesson on coral reefs and sea grasses (Pacific Ocean)
  • A storm surge experiment highlighting environmental services (Indian Ocean)
  • A microscope and blubber experiment called "from plankton to whales" (Southern Ocean), and
  • An eco-art interactive mural painting (Arctic Ocean)

The whole family can enjoy activities such as the rock-climbing wall, the Pelican Skipper pontoon boat rides to Chicken Key, and Artist Lane, featuring unique creations by local artisans.

And of course, the festival would not be complete without its very own Seafood Alley, presented by Golden Rule Seafood.
