Welcome to Storybook Village, where your favorite storybook characters magically come to life! Bring your little ones to meet celebrated characters from popular fairy tales as they roam Ohio Village and interact with visitors. Ask Rapunzel to let down her hair, help Cinderella with her chores, and fend off the dastardly Captain Hook! You’ll also get the chance to meet some of your favorite characters from famous television shows and children’s stories! This year’s theme is “Be a Water Hero,” which is all about water advocacy and learning more about how to conserve our natural environment. Storytelling will happen throughout the day with tales that relate to this year's theme!
