HANNIBAL, Mo. — The Wild and Wacky Art Adventure, a free art festival for kids ages 3 to 10 and their families, will be held from 9 a.m.-noon on Saturday, Aug. 5 in Hannibal’s Central Park, Fourth and Broadway. 

This year’s theme is “Dinosaurs Galore.” The Hannibal Arts Council will be partnering with many Hannibal organizations, businesses and people to present a morning-long event for the entire family. The event is free.  

The projects of Masterpiece T-Shirts and Box Town will be back this year. New projects have been added to this year’s dinosaur theme — Pointillism Dino, Digging Dinosaurs, Roll-A-Dino Scene, Dinosaur Headdress, Origami Dino and Hungry Dinosaur.

The Hannibal Arts Council created the Wild and Wacky Art Adventure to provide a positive activity in which parents and children can interact, work side by side, explore creativity and, in some ways, strengthen the sense of family. Local businesses and organizations are sponsoring the event in partnership with the Hannibal Arts Council. More than 200 children and children-at-heart enjoy the event each year.
