Each year, Marietta StreetFest includes plenty of fun activities for kids. In Kids Korner and Tiny Tot Town, young festival attendees will find inflatables, crafts, games and more. Throughout the weekend, a variety of kid-friendly entertainment from puppets to a bubble show will delight audiences of all ages. A small fee applies to some activities.
