Family Fun on Memorial weekend!

Memorial weekend is here!  We told you recently about the new film Legends of Oz: Dorothy's return here and we ant a few of our readers to the advance screening.  Now we are combining the long weekend with the movie! 
If you don't have plans yet, here is something fun to consider for the entire family in Miami. Because we know Miami families are in the mode to Escape Urban Beach Weekend we found this more family-friendly option at Jungle Island: The Legends of Oz Express rolls in from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (tomorrow)Saturday, May 24th.   

Join Dorothy and friends for a fun family day filled with FREE arts & crafts, games, character meet & greets and story time during the Legends of Oz Express event at Jungle Island on Saturday, May 24th.

Highlights include a Lion’s Mane Stage with singing and improv games based on the new film and its characters; a Scarecrow’s Workshop to learn how to engineer a candy catapult and build Tugg the Tugboat; a Tin Man’s Friendship Club featuring custom friendship buttons to take home; book readings with Dorothy; ipad stations with Oz Virtual World games; pictures with Dorothy, Toto and Wiser the Owl at the Emerald City; plus previews of the upcoming movie “Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return!”
