Spring Fling at California Living Museum, April 4-8

Spring Fling is scheduled April 4-8 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the California Living Museum. As a way of welcoming springtime to Bakersfield, admission for children (between the ages of 3-12 years) is only $4. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Each day, there will be a variety of fun-filled activities as well as daily Keeper Chats. On Tuesday, April 4, from 9 a.m. to noon, the veterinarian will be in to provide a health check for your favorite stuffed toy. All "patients" will receive and official certificate of health from our veterinarian. If you need a new stuffed toy friend, the CALM Gift Store has a wide variety of mammal, bird and reptile stuffies available.

If all that wasn't enough fun, the Central Valley Children's Railroad will be chugging along the tracks from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. The train is appropriate for all ages and tickets are only $2 per person for unlimited rides.

Hunsaker Brothers food services will be onsite for those wishing to purchase lunch (or a snack); however, guests are also welcome to bring their own picnic lunch.

CALM is located only 15 minutes from downtown Bakersfield, at 10500 Alfred Harrell Hwy., (between Lake Ming and Hart Park).
