It will also display a 10’ ocean mural and encourage kids to add their artistic touches with paint.
Create Studios (http://www.createstudiofun.com) a Westlake Village art studio for kids who want to create works of art with recycled, artistic and crafty materials, will be bringing lots of coconuts for kids to decorate.
Much of the kids' entertainment, including regular storybook reading times and performances of "Peter Pan" by the Conejo Players (http://www.conejoplayers.org) will take place on the Family Stage.
