In addition, SKyPAC, with the help of local art educators, will offer children’s art Photo Credit: Alison Houkactivities where kids can create their own work of art, offering both learning opportunities and creative expression while having fun.

Do you like looking for things?  Find architectural and Kentucky facts related to SKyPAC’s building features located throughout the Lobby, Main and Children’s Galleries.   Identify all of the items, collect all of the gold stars and win a prize.

With all of this going on, you will probably get hungry.  Pack a picnic lunch or better yet, visit one of the food vendors – Rapid Rick’s and Froggy’s Food Truck – that will be on-site.  Once you have your grub, grab some space on the corner, grassy knoll, enjoy the spring weather and have a ball.

Whether for only an hour or for the whole event, just come because it is time to celebrate!  We’ll have random drawings throughout the day for tickets to SKyPAC, and gift certificate to local businesses.
