(NEWS 8) - The San Diego WOW Festival is back for its third biennial show. With events ranging from film showings to puppet shows to flash mobs, the WOW (without walls) Festival is sure to entertain all ages with all interests.
The festival gets started Thursday with events at the Horton Plaza Park, San Diego Central Library, New Children’s Museum and Bread & Salt in Logan Heights that will last through the weekend.
