HAPPINESS IS ...

One of the world's more popular pups makes his debut at Valleyfair amusement park this year. "Planet Snoopy" is the newest attraction, spanning more than 31/2 acres. More than 20 "Peanuts"-themed rides will thrill adventure seekers, including the Kite-Eating Tree, Sally's Swing Set and Charlie Brown's Wind-Up. Grab a bite at Planet Grill and do a little shopping at the Peanuts Playhouse Snoopy Boutique. Guests will also be able to meet with characters Lucy, Linus and the rest of the gang.

This annual celebration of Norwegian heritage is filled with games for children, folk art and dance demonstrations. Listen to traditional music while enjoying festival food.
