If you see youngsters with paper hats or “swamp wings” strolling through the Black Swamp Arts Festival streets, you’ll know they’ve spent time in the Youth Arts area.
Youth Arts, which draws more than 1,000 youngsters during the three-day festival, gives parents who attend the fest for the arts, music or food, time to sit back and let their child have their fun.
“Everybody loves paper hats,” said Matt Reger, Youth Arts committee chairman.
“The two things that are always the most popular are the tie-dyed (shirts) and the paper hats,” he added.
The swamp wings were given a “time out” and have been rejuvenated this year.
The festival promotes the arts in the Bowling Green community, and doesn’t forget the youngsters while doing so.
The Youth Arts area, located at the north end of the festival near to Wood County District Public Library, is open Sept. 8 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sept. 9 from noon to 5 p.m.
According to the BSAF web site, all activities have been tried and tested and are guaranteed fun. Volunteers supervise all activities and stage performances. Activities may vary each year.
