- Where: Monterey County Fairgrounds, Monterey
- Cost: Not available
- Age limit: Not available
This free 13th annual kid extravaganza makes adulthood seem plain ol' boring. It's stocked with all kinds of intriuguingly fun and (shhhh) educational do-dads like the 24-foot Extreme Slide, Eurobungee Rockwall, 50-foot Drill Sergeant Obstacle Course, Bounce House Village, World Cup Penalty Kick Soccer Game (how's that for timely?) and, new this year, BMX bike demos. Sponsored by A&S Metals and geared to kids 4 and up, this two-day giggle fest promises fun but safe "edutainment," with tasty food and drink for purchase along the way, for an estimated 20,000 bodies all weekend. Oh, to be a kid again. [WR]
