The Cardboard Challenge, Inspired by Caine’s Arcade

(included General Festival Admission)
Located in The Imagination Playground

New to the festival this year will be a cardboard challenge inspired from a documentary film, Caine’s Arcade, that featured a cardboard arcade created by a 9-year-old in East Los Angeles.  Local students will be bringing their own arcade games for festival-goers to enjoy at the festival! Built from recycled material, the arcade-style games will be like no other!

Festival participants are invited to create their own arcade games from cardboard and other recycled material.

There will be a sneak preview event at Lansdowne Centre on Saturday, February 3 from 12:00 to 3:00 PM including a mini arcade atmosphere with fun music and balloons. The top 10 games from the Lansdowne event will be featured at the festival on Family Day.
