Hulen Mall
St. Patrick’s Day at Kids Club
Thursday, March 8

Everyone’s invited to Hulen Mall to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day when Kids Club presents Top O’ the Mornin’, a salute to all things Irish. The gathering will be oh-so much fun with a wee bit o’ singing and dancing, maybe a tale or two and, of course, a charming craft to make and take home. Watch out, maybe there will be a leprechaun or two hiding about.

Kids Club starts at 11 a.m. on the lower level in Center Court near the Play Area and lasts 30-45 minutes. There’s no fee for Kids Club and reservations are not required, but adults are asked to sign up little ones at the event. Parents/caregivers are required to stay with children. Adults who are bringing five or more children are asked to call Fara Reid at (817) 294-1205 x7021 so that club organizers will have a giveaway for every participant.
