Coshocton Airport Amphitheater season starts with Family Fun Fest

| June 18, 2013

COSHOCTON – Children will have the opportunity to be part of the entertainment during the Coshocton Airport Amphitheater season opener.

Family Fun Fest 2013 will be held Saturday, June 29 and features The Amazing Portable (Cincinnati) Circus.

“It’s an a la carte type troupe that has everything you’d find at a circus but the animals,” said David Wickham, who serves on the amphitheater board and helps with programming and marketing. “They have different artists that do things such as perform juggling acts, are fire breathers or even swallow swords.”

On June 29, the troupe will do its interactive rock and roll and juggling shows that will get kids up and active.

“Kids will be part of the shows and adults should have fun watching too,” Wickham said.

There also will be inflatables and food vendors.

The gates open at 5 p.m. and the shows are from 6 to 8 p.m.  In case of bad weather, the show will be held at the National Guard Army.

“We hope this is a way to get families out to the amphitheater,” Wickham said.

Wrist bands for the event are free for kids 5 and under; $5 for kids 12 and younger; and $10 for those older than 12. They can be purchased at Kids America, the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum, Unusual Junction, Medbery Marketplace, the Coshocton Chamber of Commerce, online at www.coshoctonairportamphitheater.com or at the amphitheater on the day of the event.
