Kaleidoscope Free Summer Kids Events


Children can enjoy a variety of free activities and entertainment at Kaleidoscope this summer, when the center’s annual Kaleido Kids events return on Tuesday, June 19. Co-sponsored by Jump ‘n Jammin and held in Kaleidoscope’s center courtyard, the fun events are every Tuesday from June 19 through August 1 at 11:30 a.m.

The series of events will conclude with the annual Kaleido Kids Carnival on Tuesday, August 7 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Kaleidoscope donates all proceeds from Carnival tickets to Make-A-Wish® Orange County and the Inland Empire, and has raised more than $50,000 for the non-profit over the last six years.

The Kaleido Kids event schedule is:

June 19   Dance Party at 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
June 26   Pirate Magic Show at 11:30 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
July 3       Musical Rock Concert Puppet Show, 11:30 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
July 10     Science Show at 11:30am - 12:15 p.m.
July 17     Comedy Balloon Variety Show at 11:30 a.m. – 12 p.m.

July 31     Lego Fun at 11:30am - 12:30 p.m.
August 7   Carnival, 11:30am - 2:30 p.m.

The Kaleido Kids Carnival on August 7 will include inflatables, games, a juggler, a stilt walker, face painting, a balloon artist, kiddie train, DJ and more. Admission is free, but select activities require tickets, which are $1 each, $5 for six, or $10 for 15. Guests who bring a new toy (no guns please) or a new backpack to donate to Make-A-Wish will receive five game tickets.

Also on Tuesdays, restaurants inside Union Market Mission Viejo at Kaleidoscope host Kids Eat Free, with a child receiving a free beverage or kids meal with the purchase of a regular (adult) beverage or entrée. The Union Market Mission Viejo boutiques also offer 20% off on Tuesdays.

Adding to the summer fun, Edwards Kaleidoscope Stadium 10 is again hosting its Summer Movie Express on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10 a.m., when popular family movies (rated G or PG) are shown for only $1 admission per person. Summer Movie Express, which runs June 19 to August 21, will feature The Secret Life of Pets, The Lego Batman Movie, and other kid-friendly films.
