Face painting, balloon animals, pumpkin decorating and even slime making. Kids could enjoy all of these at the Riverpoint Arts Festival.

"We hope that the kids just get a good immersion into the arts culture in Norfolk," Norfolk Arts Center Program Coordinator Sara Putters said. "Not a lot of organizations around town are doing things specifically for kids this weekend. That's the whole point of our event, to keep it kid-central and arts focused." 

The Norfolk Arts Center hosted the event. People that came out and enjoyed the activities could walk down the street to Oktoberfest afterward.

You won’t find any polka music or German beer here though. It’s all about immersing kids in the arts.

"We want your kids to come and we want to be the first experience your kid has with the arts," Putters said. "You know, just to be able to have fun in an open environment. There's so many things to do and so many things to experience. We've got our beautiful galleries here that you can visit. Lots to do and lots to see."
