HARTFORD — Escape the summer heat with a journey to the magic land of Arendelle and meet Princesses Elsa and Anna at the Lewis & Clark Confluence Tower, 435 Confluence Tower Drive, on Saturday, Aug. 8.
Let imagination be your guide and transport you to Elsa’s ice castle as you journey up to the two top levels of the tower to meet the two magical princesses between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Cameras are welcome for photo opportunities. Admission to the tower is $1 for children 12 and under and $2 for adults.
After meeting the princesses, there will be face-painting activities courtesy of Party on Broadway in the tower’s visitors center as well as a “Frozen”-themed bounce house from Riverbend Bounce on the Tower grounds. These are free activities. Food and drinks and Tropical Sno Shaved Ice will be available for purchase.
“Anyone who has seen the movie ‘Frozen’ won’t want to miss this opportunity to meet Elsa and Anna,” Village of Hartford Projects Manager Deanna Barnes said. “It would be great to see the kids dress up as their favorite princess and have their photos taken. What a wonderful keepsake for them.”
“Frozen at the Tower” is part of the Kid’Cation activities promoted by the Alton Regional Convention and Visitors Bureau. Kid’Cation gives families the opportunity to enjoy affordable vacation activities during the last days of summer before school begins.
The tower is open seven days a week Mondays through Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. Guided tours are available throughout the day.
