The 17th season of Biscayne National Park’s award-winning Family Fun Fest explores the park’s fantastic beasts, from tiny plankton to manatees and crocodiles. The monthly series of events takes place from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. on the second Sunday of every month from December through April. Family Fun Fest Junior includes specially-designed activities for toddlers (ages 5 and under) to ensure that the entire family gets to participate, and free transportation from downtown Homestead (and by extension, anywhere served by public transportation) is available aboard the Homestead National Parks Trolley, courtesy of the City of Homestead.
This year’s season, inspired by the motion picture Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, highlights a different group of park animals each month with activities that include games, science experiments, live animal presentations and craft projects.
