"Hot Times has become the largest, totally volunteer, community based Arts event in Central Ohio. The event continues to provide a forum for community and cultural interaction and understanding, and provides a venue in which people can be bound together as a greater, cross-cultural community by developing and stimulating the development of an appreciation for the Arts." -

Hot Times is a wonderful environment for all children!

This event is part of the Hot Times Community Music and Arts Festival.
