The Gasparilla Music Festival “GMF” has plenty to offer families as it has continued to expand its Kids’ Fest which runs both days of the festival from 11:00am-2:00pm in Kiley Gardens Park. This year’s Kids’ Fest headliner will be Disney’s Choo Choo Soul with Genevieve! who will be performing Sunday at 11:30 on the Channelside Bay Plaza Stage at Kiley Gardens. Kids’ Fest will also include “Kiddo Disco” on Saturday from 11:30am-1:00pm on the Shea Barclay Stage at Tibbetts’ Corner. The “Kiddo Disco” will be Tampa’s first ever silent disco for kids with popular characters serving as DJs and will have three styles of music to choose from appealing to all different age groups of children from toddlers to preteens. Other highlights for the GMF Kids’ Fest include performances by local favorites Silly Sam and Smallfish, as well as the new Kids’ Interactive Zone. This area will feature a variety of activities for kids to be hands on including an Instrument Petting Zoo, an African drum experience, a fun building block area, face painting and more.
