Cinco de Mayo Celebration Introduces Little Ones to the Sound of Mexico at The Woodlands Children’s Museum
THE WOODLANDS, TX – Children and their families are invited to experience some of the culture of Mexico Saturday, May 4, when The Woodlands Children’s Museum hosts a Cinco de Mayo celebration.
The museum’s celebration will include dance performances, a special Storybook Theatre presentation and an opportunity to create a Piñata Shaker art project in the MUSE, the museum’s art bar.
Activities will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 4775 W. Panther Creek Drive, The Woodlands, TX 77381.
Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. In the United States, the holiday has become a time to celebrate Mexican history, music, language and traditions.
“We are always looking for ways to introduce little ones to the richness, fun and beauty of different cultures,” Executive Director Angela Colton said. “Cinco de Mayo is a perfect opportunity to do that.”
During Storybook Theatre, 11-11:15 a.m., children can hear Cinco de Mouse-O! The delightful storybook, written by Judy Cox and illustrated by Jeffrey Ebbeler, is about a mouse who follows a tempting aroma to a Cinco de Mayo festival.
At 10:30 and 11:30 a.m., the Chikawa Aztec Dancers will take the stage, and Ballet Folklorico will perform at 12:30 and 1:30 p.m.
The Cinco de Mayo celebration is included in the museum’s regular $7 admission price for visitors age 1 and older.
The Woodlands Children’s Museum is recommended for ages 7 and under. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
