Share this post
You can climb a 24 foot rock wall, ride a pony and kiss a llama at Kidsfest on Saturday, May 2.
The 14th Annual Kidsfest will have a 24 foot rock climbing wall that 3 people can climb on at one time, pony rides between 11 and 2 and yes, even a live llama to kiss (the llama's only going to be there from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. - but the rock wall and much more will be there for the duration of Kidsfest (10 a.m. to 3 p.m.) at the N. Florida Fairgrounds.
And that's not all! There will be a train giving children rides, a 78 foot monster obstacle course/giant water slide combination, a bounce house and much more. Area businesses and organizations will be providing a variety of hands-on children's activities, ranging from arts and crafts to games. Tyger Tales will be on hand making balloon art, courtesy of Children's Medical Services and you can never tell which cartoon character may show up at Kidsfest. Children can fish for letters and spell words, build legos or substitute marshmallows & spaghetti for tinker toys. There will be 3 types of golf - putt putt, ladder and disc. Children can learn how to do a magic trick. Leon LifeSaver will be rolling around talking with kids. Children can learn martial arts, hula hoop, juggle and go home with a book. They can make necklaces, try out an obstacle course, and make princess wands, crowns and toss Olaf's snowball in the Frozen bucket! Victor Over Cancer will be on hand providing free sunscreen. Kids Incorporated will bring oobleck and gak to play with....messy is fun, isn't it?!
There's live children's entertainment on The Lottery's ShowVan stage throughout the day.
And the best part is the cost! It's only $3 per person admission and all activities are free....you can climb the rock wall, ride a pony, and kiss the llama and take a train ridee and create an arts and craft project.
Uncle Maddio's Pizza Joint will be selling pizza and other refreshments will be sold.
Proceeds from Kidsfest benefit Kids Incorporated of the Big Bend, a community based organization providing quality, comprehensive services to at-risk families with children ages birth to 3 and pregnant women and their families.
Won't you come climb a rock, ride a pony and kiss a llama....all to help kids?!! Hope to see you on May 2nd at the Fairgrounds!
