Uptown Kids celebrates anniversary with carnival and Desmond Mason
Uptown Kids in Classen Curve knows how to celebrate. For its one-year anniversary, the children’s store, along with artist and former NBA basketball player Desmond Mason and Prevent Blindness Oklahoma, are hosting a carnival from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
To get your child in on the fun, donate $5 for a wristband and unlimited carnival snacks, games, prizes, face painting, moon bounces, a petting zoo, balloon art and superheroes. Uptown Kids is at 5840 N Classen.
Children who get there early can participate in the Blank Canvas event and paint with Mason on one of the canvases to be sold at a charity auction on Sept. 22. The auction will benefit Prevent Blindness Oklahoma. A limited number of canvases are available, so this isn’t the day to sleep in.
Mason, an Oklahoma favorite, played basketball at at OSU, then with the Seattle Super Sonics, the OKC Hornets and the OKC Thunder. He studied art in college, and since leaving the NBA, has opened an art gallery in Oklahoma City.
