MLK Day “Give Back” Craft

Celebrate MLK Day by giving back to others! Stop by anytime on Monday, January 20 between 11am-3pm to create a fun craft in support of Enchanted Makeovers, an organization that nurtures women and children living in homeless shelters. We’ll be creating “hero capes” for children in these shelters to let them know they can be their own superhero. Admission on MLK Day is "Pay What You Wish." The suggested donation is the general admission price. This activity is included!
