Today’s kicks off CMA Fest in Nashville and as your frugal mentor, I want to give you a heads up about the CMA Music Festival 2011 Free Family Fun Zone. Not only will there be lots of free kids activities, music, food and fun…but this year your kids will also be able to meet the Smurfs!
Yes, Smurf fans young & old can come out June 9-12 to meet and take pictures with Papa Smurf, Clumsy Smurf and Smurfette. The Smurfs will be in Nashville promoting their upcoming, first-ever feature film, opening in theaters July 29. The Smurfs will be at the CMA Music Festival Family Zone (located at Walk of Fame Park) from 10a-6p Thursday through Saturday and from 10a -4p on Sunday. Don’t worry if the Smurfs themselves are taking a break in the shade when you go; you can still take advantage of SMURF-Berry Snow Cones, animal balloons and prizes at their tent!
Even if you’re not in Nashville, you can bring the Smurfs home with you, because I’m giving away a Smurfs prize pack to one of my readers! This awesome prize includes Smurf-tivity books (puzzles, coloring etc), bookmarks, temp tattoos, mini posters, zinc oxide (blue), t-shirts and even screening passes for the film! If you want to win, just leave a comment below letting me know which Smurf you’d most like to meet…even if they (or you!) won’t be attending the CMA Music Festival!
If you are in Nashville, here are some of the “Can’t Miss” Family Zone events for the kick-off on Thursday:
- CMA Music Festival 40thBirthday Party
- Thursday, 6/9 at 3:00 in the Family Zone
- Free mini Gigi’s Cupcakes to the first 500 fans.
- 40 of the cupcakes are numbered, and recipients of the 40 numbered cupcakes get to choose a wrapped birthday gift from CMA. All gifts are valued $25 to $500.
Look for all things CMA Music Festival at their CMA World website… and don’t forget to enter below with which Smurf you’d most like to meet for your chance to win a Smurfs Prize Pack! (Voting will end at 11:59 CST on Sunday, June 12).
