The afternoon of Saturday, July 20 is all about fun for kids when The Parks at Arlington hosts Saturday in The Parks, an annual event packed with activities and presented in the cool, out-of-the-sun comfort of the shopping center. 

From 1 to 4 p.m., there will be games and prizes and crafts for all to enjoy. Plus, The Parks at Arlington presents two live performances that are sure to delight kids of all ages, including:

  • At 2 p.m., Slappy & Monday take the stage and all sorts of silliness is sure to break out with this delightful duo. Monday plays the musical saw and stacks cigar boxes on his nose, while Slappy plays the concertina and gives her pal Monday a hard time.
  • At 3 p.m., an Amazing Bubble Show pops up with some amazing feats of bubble magic. Children and adults alike will be entertained by this fanciful performance, which features bubbles of all sizes and shapes. The audience will be invited up to participate, too. 

Along with the fun and games, retailers throughout the shopping center will have special offers so everyone can get a jump on back-to-school shopping. In addition, shoppers who spend $75 or more in purchases at retailers at The Parks at Arlington receive a $10 Shop Etc.™ Mall Gift Card, while supplies last. To receive the card, a shopper must present receipts dated Saturday, July 20 to Guest Services between 1 to 4 p.m. Guest Services is located near The Parks at Arlington mall entrance, between The Cheesecake Factory and Dillard’s.
