120 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, June 4 - June 10, 2004 Kids' Fest to offer wide variety June 12 Saturday, June 12, is expected to bring more than 5,000 people - children, youth and their families - to the Delaware State Fair- grounds in Harrington for the sev- enth annual Kids' Fest. The day will include an inflatable fair, car- nival games, arts and crafts, a youth talent show, pony and cart rides, a horse show, a Healthy Kids' Expo and lots of entertain- ment. The event supports youth activities in Kent and Sussex Counties. The Healthy Kids Expo gives community based organizations -- 4-H, Boys & Girls Clubs, Scouting groups, heath care providers, and others an opportu- nity to highlight programs and benefits. As a part of the event, these organizations also provide a hands-on activity to involve young people. Central to all the Kids' Fest ac- tivity is an inflatable fair which provides non-stop fun from start to finish. All day long, kids line up at the rides where they climb, slide, crawl, joust, bop and bounce with great energy and en- thusiasm. There is something in the inflatable fair to appeal to all ages. Kids can try the amazing Sea Monster where they tunnel along over hills, around corners and through doorways. For those with a competitive streak, there is a Jousting Arena where opponents try to knock each other off balance with padded poles. A Moon Bounce and a Giant Slide add to the ex- citement. And for the little tykes, a Ball Crawl and a Junior Bounce take center stage. "Horsey fun" will include wag- on and pony rides and a petting zoo, horse and pony workshops, a Quarter Horse show and more. A Karaoke station, a dunk tank, the Little Train ride and a wide vari- ety of carnival games and refresh- ments will also be available to round it all out. The G-Team of Dover will pro- vide two stages for entertainment which includes singers, dancers, clowns, jugglers, magicians and more. In a special area, the Kent County SPCA will demonstrate dog obedience training and games. Another area will be set aside for demonstrations presented by area schools of martial arts. The day will also feature a Youth Talent Show with young people ages 4 to 18 competing in both performing arts and athletics. There will be both solo and group performances, udging will be on natural ability, quality of perform- ance, showmanship, choreogra- phy (where applicable) and audi- ence appeal. In addition to affordable fun for kids and their families, Kids' Fest provides an opportunity for com- munity organizations to partici- pate and to highlight their activi- ties and services. Participation is free to nonprofit organizations who are asked to provide a hands- on activity for young people. Admission to the fairgrounds for Kids' Fest which runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. is $2 for adults; kids get in free.
