On Saturday August 3, 2013 Audaciously Planned Events hosted an Alice in Wonderland themed special event in Magnolia- Montgomery County, TX.
This event truly took the entire family to another place and time. My Kid’s Dentist and Orthodontics, another local community business conveniently located on 1488 and Kuykendahl Road sponsored the train rides through Wonderland. This was no typical train ride. Instead, all guests received a long whimsical ride through the wondrous gardens of wonderland and the opportunity to view the entire venue and special event decor. There were special character appearances by the Mad Hatter, Alice, Mr. Rabbit, Cheshire cat, and the Queen of Hearts. Guests experienced a full day of family fun with non-stop activities.

Various event activities included, but were not limited to: Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum obstacle course, Mad Hatter’s tea party, the rabbit hole, Wonderland character painting, Wii Wonderland gaming, Mr. Rabbit’s house, Mad Hatter hat collection, dress up for the party, navigating through the pond of Alice’s tears, petting zoo, Mad Hatter hat toss, cards man bean bag toss, sugar cube tea cup toss, musical tea cups, paint the roses red, kick ball croquet, Red Queen Says, hedgehog flamingo croquet, Queens Garden and invitation to play croquet with the queen, two bounce houses, and many more activates!

Audaciously Planned Events wants to extend a special thank you to My Kid’s Dentist and Orthodontics for their contribution in making the Alice in Wonderland event a success and for what they do for the children of our community.
