What a great morning activity with the kids! The ICT Popup Park will be the location for free mini theater acts for kids this summer.
Talented kids from The Studio voice coaching school will perform classic Disney songs. Kids will be able to sing along while enjoying free snacks courtesy of Westar Energy.
Adults can enjoy the coffee available for purchase from local food truck Sunflower Espresso.
These performances will be held on Friday mornings from 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. Here’s the schedule:
After each morning’s performance, stay for lunch from the local food trucks that will be parked at the Popup Park!

After lunch, take a stroll down Douglas – just a block east or west – to see if you can spot some of the fun bronze sculptures. Some are obvious, and some will require an eagle-eye! In particular, be sure to stop by Chester C. Lewis Reflection Square Park, which is just about one block east of the popup park. It features several fun bronze sculptures, including the Dockum Drugstore Sit-In, and a mini splash fountain kids can walk on and get their feet wet. (Wear flip-flops or sandals!)
Around the corner, you’ll find the Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum. It’s the building with the clock tower, directly across the street from Wichita’s old downtown library. Admission to the museum is a bargain, and there’s lots of fun local history to explore in there – not to mention the building itself, which used to be City Hall.
The Popup Park also hosts free summer movies!
