The kidzone is a fairly new attraction of the Pittsburgh Blues Festival. Thanks to a few of the event's many sponsors, the Kidzone tent at the festival accommodates a wide range of children activities including story-telling, face painting, musical presentations, and crafts. The kidzone also provides healthy snacks.[2]
