featuring: Ian Dobson's Steel Drum Party!

In the Caribbean a steel drum is called a "pan" and to party is to "leggo"
Get Ready to Pan Leggo!!!!

Dance, Ian_Panclap, and stomp along to live steel drum music!  This rhythmical journey uses music, dance, and movement to inspire resourcefulness, creativity, confidence, and an interest in exploring other languages and cultures.   Ian has performed it hundreds of times all over the United States for young audiences large and small. 

The City of Maple Valley's annual Kids' Festival is Saturday, July 23, 2016 from 11:00am-4:00pm at Lake Wilderness Park and this year there is even more to do than before! All children ages 2-12 will find tons of FREE things to do: live music provided by Ian Dobson with his Steel Drum Party, face painting, children's crafts, the candy cannon, model airplanes, inflatable toys, interactive exhibits, and much more. Come hungry and purchase a hot dog from the food booth. Even warm up your throwing arm and take your revenge on the lifeguards at the dunk tank.

The best part about the Festival is that nearly everything to do is FREE! There is almost too much to do!
