Birthdays are milestones for children, so you want to be able to celebrate your child’s birthday with a memorable experience. Your kids might be outgrowing small parties at your house, or they might want a more exciting way to spend their birthday.

You can spend your child’s special day with a whole park or play place the party guests can have all to themselves, or look for kid- and family-focused businesses that host parties. Some are even dedicated to birthdays and other parties.

Here are five party venues in the Frederick area made to satisfy any birthday kid.
