Volunteers run a variety of kids’ activities, including crafts and games to help children get the full experience of the area, which is three times larger than the old space.

“We’re seeing so many more families coming out to see KidsFringe,” Fringe Theatre communications specialist Megan Dart said. “We can accommodate so many more than we have in the past and it’s awesome to see.”

Those who would like to volunteer can do so online.
