Colossal Candy Creations, Flying Unicorn Pigs and Marshmallow Tsunamis to Invade Midtown.
Candytopia, the immersive pop-up that brings a sugar-coated dreamworld candy factory to life, is thrilled to announce its national expansion and debut in New York City. Following its successful Los Angeles run in Santa Monica in early 2018, Candytopia will bring its imaginative confectionary wonderland to Midtown Manhattan later this summer for a limited engagement.
The cast of Aladdin performed with delight and engaged with the audience throughout the show. I loved that there was no stage sets used. The scene was set through dialogue and minimal props. The personalities of all the characters shined throughout the story with lots of wit and humor. The kids in the audience seemed to really enjoy the show (I know my girls did) as I looked around and saw kids and adults smiling and laughing out loud throughout the theatre. It was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon.
IKEA in Hicksville is celebrating Summer with some wonderful events for the kids.
Not only are they providing some FREE Family Fun for their IKEA FAMILY card members but, they are giving back to our community. Did you know that on any given night there are 2,000 children in homeless shelters in Nassau and Suffolk counties? “At IKEA, children are the most important people in the world, so IKEA looks to support programs that make a difference in the lives of the many children. For this reason, IKEA Long Island is partnering with Long Island Coalition for the Homeless to donate 500 backpacks to homeless children. We are also doing a school supply drive throughout the month of July to fill those backpacks.”
