A weekend full of creativity and exploration is in store for the young visitors of the 49th Annual Art & Apples Festival at the Kids Art Zone as the festival welcomes new sponsor, Meijer, as announced in a press release. Rochester’s local Meijer, located at the crossroads of Auburn and Rochester roads, is looking forward to raising the bar this year by bringing a number of new activities to the Kids Art Zone.

Oakland County Parks and Recreation will also be on-site with large-scale inflatables and the ever-popular rock climbing wall, giving kids and parents space to have some fun, while the Detroit Institute of Arts will be offering a make-and-take art project. Other arts and activities will be offered by Metro Parent Magazine and Paint Creek Center for the Arts over the course of the weekend.
