Today - rain or shine, the 5th annual Kids Creative Arts Street Fair on the Square sets up all around the Market House in downtown Paducah beginning at 10 am.  The community celebrates the creative arts with the Street Fair on the Square.

This is the fifth year for this family activity—sponsored by Market House Theatre —where over a dozen Paducah non-profit arts and culture organizations will provide a wide variety of “hands on” experiences!
 
The event will be held on Market House Square, between the MHT Box Office and Yeiser Art Center. Children of all ages may choose between the many booths offering crafts, art, drama, music, games, stories, dance—and—just fun!

In the MHT Theatre  & Studio Theatre there will be several interactive sessions for kids featuring theatre games, improv, and performances by the HA! Teen Comedy Improv Troupe.

In addition, MHT will have a make-your-own tie-dye t-shirt booth,* and the PlayTime Interactive Theatre Troupe will perform a FREE show of The Boy Who Cried Wolf in our Studio Theatre at 11:30 am. MHT will also have a booth for children to explore theatrical sound effects and an area for dressing up in costumes and taking your photo against some of our scenic backdrops. Costumed strollers will add to the festive atmosphere.
