KidFest Event Returning to Antioch Park on June 16
POSTED: 05/23/2007
Following success in 2005 and 2006, the KidFest event will be back from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on June 16. This event is being presented by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District's Children's Service's Department and will take place at Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam.

This event was first presented in 2005 as part of the District's year-long 50th anniversary celebration and was so successful the Children's Services Department made it a regular event.

Planned for this year's four-hour event are a variety of activity booths, including face and hair painting, ring and bean-bag tosses, tile painting, bead jewelry making, a cake walk, crown decorating, and more. These booths will be located near the recently-renovated Dodgetown playground and near Antioch Park's administration buildings and will be manned by staff from Children's Services' 24 afterschool and five preschool programs.

Also planned are: moon walks, a Build-It Workshop sponsored by Lowe's Home Improvement Warehouse, a Kansas Speedway Pace Car, a fire truck from the City of Merriam, a concession area, and more.

Admission will be $4 for a child's wristband and adults are free with a canned food donation. Kids under two are free. Advance registration is not required for this event.
