Child Fest 2014, Mitchell Yancey Partnership for Children’s (Smart Start), long-running celebration of children and families is happening this weekend. This FREE event is Saturday, April 5th from 10 am until 2 pm. Mitchell High School, located in Ledger will again host Child Fest.
Child Fest has a mixture of arts, crafts, games, face painting and other fun activities to keep your family entertained. While your kids are making a wild hat, you can learn about services for families in our local community.
You won’t want to miss the magician performance as it is includes puppetry, ventriloquism, audience participation and of course, magic! And Teddy’s for Maddie will be hosting the Teddy Bear Clinic. Did we mention the bicycle rodeo with free helmets to give away- as long as they last?
The Mitchell-Yancey Partnership for Children, Child Care Resource and Referral, Mitchell County United Way and local businesses work together to ensure that Child Fest is FREE. For more information, contact the Mitchell-Yancey Partnership for Children at 682-0047 or 765-5130.
