Owls in Wonderland
Designed to ignite the imagination and inspire creativity, Laguna Blanca School invites the Santa Barbara and Montecito communities to jump down the rabbit hole for the ninth annual Owls in Wonderland Carnival at its Lower School campus this Sunday, November 11.
This whimsical day of interactive learning and creative play allows children of all ages to build their own one-of-a-kind topper in the Mad Hatter’s Workshop, explore bubbling potions and slimy surprises in Mad Science, and create timeless masterpieces at the art station. Guests can create keepsake photos using the magic of technology at the popular Cheshire Illusions Photo Booth and move from station to station to collect stamps for their passports. “Whether taking a break at the Tea Party or letting imaginations soar during Story Time Adventures on the front porch, there is something for everyone!” said Laguna Blanca rep Tara Broucqsault.
Inspired by Swoop, the school’s owl mascot, and the timeless tale of Alice in Wonderland, this popular event draws hundreds of Santa Barbara children to the school’s Montecito campus each year. Adding to the festive spirit and befitting the Alice in Wonderland theme, volunteers and guests are encouraged to dress up as characters from the story.
Admission and activities are free and geared toward children ages 3 to 10, as well as the young at heart. Complimentary valet parking is available and encouraged. Food will be available for purchase from El Taco Tequila Taqueria and Here’s The Scoop gelato.
The event is on Sunday, November 11, from 11 am to 2 pm at the Lower School Campus, 260 San Ysidro Road. Guests can get their free tickets online at www.lagunablanca.org/wonder.
