For the kids, Kids in the Park, provided an opportunity to make art under the supervision of show day volunteers. Kids enjoyed face painting. Kids in the Park and face painting are free to all children. Kids in the Park hours are 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The theme this year is "A Moment in Magic" and our featured entertainment will be Magic of the Steelgraves. There will be two performances; one at 11:00 a.m. and the other at 1:00 p.m. Story time with Kim Campbell from South Portland Library is also scheduled between the magic shows.

The Student Art tent, next to the Judges' Tent, featured work from students in South Portland schools. Every year, the Committee chooses three student art works to use in promotional materials for the show including posters, t-shirts, and the program cover.

In the Food Court, vendors sold delectable dishes ranging from hamburgers and soft drinks to ethnic cuisine.   And live music in the afternoon providing a toe-tapping background for the art, food and fun.

Mill Creek Park is located on Broadway between Ocean Street and Cottage Road, one block east of the Casco Bay Bridge. For more information, contact Mary Perry at (207) 767-7605 or
