TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- Children's Day is back at the Museum of Florida History.

This marks the 33rd year for the day of free performances, exhibitors, and history.

Festivities include live performances by the Tallahassee Ballet, the Young Actors Theatre and Trousdale dance teams.

Organizers also say the popular Dr. Sound’s Music Clinic and the BJ’s Party House face painting are back again this year. Kids also get to take part in  paper tube race cars, personalized button making, balloon bracelets, animal bingo, golf, and much more.

Last year, more than 3,000 people took part in Children's Day. Organizers say they're proud to offer this Tallahassee tradition for more than three decades.

This year's theme is "Racing through History," which coincides with "Sun, Sand and Speed: Florida Auto Racing," the Museum's new exhibit looking at auto racing through the ages.

The 2016 Children's Day is Saturday, January 30 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Museum of Florida History (500 S. Bronough). It's free to attend and all are invited.
