Kids dressed as their favorite character and caretakers can experience a majestic Saturday evening at Please Touch Museum's annual Storybook Ball.
After a red-carpet entrance, Mad Hatter will host the ball's annual book awards. There will be a musical performance by award-winning recording artist Jonathan Sprout, and kids can enjoy storytime and also dance during the Baby Loves Disco party.
