About: Springtime is in the air and the roof at Ponce City Market invites you to celebrate its first official spring season at Skyline Park’s inaugural Spring Fling event on Saturday, April 1, from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Shake off the winter blues with a festive afternoon and evening of 360-degree skyline views, outdoor entertainment and games, seasonal festivities and carnival-themed fare. The event will kick off with family-friendly fun from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. During this time, the rooftop amusement park will come alive with activities such as face painting, balloon artists, bubble machines and photo opportunities with life-size garden fairies. Children and adults will also enjoy unlimited access to Skyline Park’s acclaimed Heege Tower and three-story slide, in addition to Midway games that range from $1 to $3. Beyond seasonal entertainment and games, Skyline Park will offer specialty snow cones, as well as its prized selection of imaginative carnival fare, including short rib sandwiches, gourmet popcorn, salted soft pretzels, and famous “walking taco,” a snack-size bag of Fritos, opened up and filled with braised beef, pico de gallo, and avocado. Daytime admission will be $10 for adults and children. Children under three are free. From 4 to 11 p.m., Skyline Park will transform into an adults-only fun zone.
