On Friday, September 27, through Saturday, September 28, dozens of characters both historical and animated swoop in on Jellystone Park Resort. Kids become characters too by crafting capes, masks, and hats, and they discover new powers in yoga and Latin dance workshops. In the 12th annual installment of this charity-focused weekend, the fun coalesces around the theme Build Your Character. The festival will also host a variety of other activities appropriate for all ages, from mini golf to scavenger hunts.
Two dozen musical performances take the stage over the weekend, including roots reggae outfit Aaron Kamm and the One Drops, the folk- and bluegrass-infused Old Salt Union, and jazz-funk ensemble Rhythm Section Road Show. Yogi Bear will also be roaming the grounds, so parents are encouraged to pack snacks in coolers but avoid picnic baskets.
