Masks, hoopla, music, and more! Dress up the kids (because, really, who doesn’t love cute kids all dressed up?) and bring them dancing to WTMD’s Saturday Morning Tunes Mini Masquerade Ball! The minis (and their families) will be taking over the Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric on Saturday, May 5th from 10 AM – 12 PM.

They are packing a TON of fun into those two hours: catch a performing by one of Baltimore’s best party bands, Bachelor Boys Band (playing all of WTMD’s favorite kid-approved songs), hula hooping stilt walkers, juggling uni-cyclists, interactive hula hooping, face painting, arts, crafts, a masquerade-themed photo booth, Lohr Family Follies, pint-sized fancy finger foods, sparkling cider toast at 11, and more. 

The most important question: what do we wear? Dresses, button-down shirts and ties are strongly encouraged. Bring your own masks, or make one at the arts and crafts tables. The more colorful, the better!

Oh, and for the adults? Coffee. Lots of coffee — and snacks (included in the ticket price). Also: some slightly stronger beverages as well (these, however, are priced separately).

The event will be held in the Lyric’s multi-level lobby and concourse, so littles can move all around. The Mini Masquerade Ball is everything we love about parties– just for parents and little ones! And the merriment ends at noon so littles are home for naps. 

Kids under 2 are free. Please reserve a free spot for your kid(s) under 2, so they know how many little ones to expect.  Family Four Packs can be used with any combination of adults and children. All proceeds benefit children’s programming on WTMD, a 501(c)(3) non-profit.

Saturday Morning Tunes Mini Masquerade Ball is presented by Live Baltimore. Other sponsors include Garrison Forest School, (cool) progeny, Maryland Excels, Race Pace Bicycles, Eddie’s of Roland Park, ClimbZone White Marsh, Baltimore Magazine and Ukazoo Books.
