Fun all weekend
As well as the exciting SLIMEFEST show, Blackpool will be hosting a free, family-friendly festival experience at the Blackpool Tower Festival Headland over the weekend.
The festival will feature a gooey Slime Zone, a funky Music Zone, an exciting Mayhem Zone and a Nick Jr. Zone for the little ones.
The Slime Zone will have all kinds of messy and crazy activities like “slime tennis” and the “slime and spoon” race. The Music Zone is the place to show off your craziest dance moves and the Slime Crew will be showing off their awesome BMX bike tricks and amazing urban gymnastic skills in the Mayhem Zone. Younger children can enjoy pre-school activities specifically catered to them in the Nick Jr. area.
The festival will also be visited by everyone’s favorite Nickelodeon characters throughout the day, so don’t miss your chance to meet Dora the Explorer, SpongeBob SquarePants and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
