Took eight grandchilren to the Phelps Pavilion over the Thanksgiving weekend and they had a great time with the various activities offered there. It was such a memorable time that any grandparent should offer.
Phelps Pavilion is a good place to take kids to experience milking a cow, loading hay into a barn, plant some flower, explore a cave, build a building, dress up on stage, explore different countries and cultures and much more..
