The Children's Museum of Wilmington is thrilled to present our 3rd Annual Character Event in the beautiful gazebo gardens of Long Leaf Park.

Join us for a morning of enchantment and imagination with your favorite superheroes, princesses, and storybook characters. Collect autograph cards and photos of your favorite characters, seek and find hidden treasures with the Enchanted Scavenger Hunt, and so much more!

In accordance with COVID-19 regulations, we will implement safe, social distancing practices throughout the event. Face coverings will be required for each attendee and temperatures will be taken upon arrival at the event. Each adult in the group will be asked to review and acknowledge a health waiver. We do not claim ownership of any characters.
