The event will focus on helping kids get on track now to make healthy choices for a lifetime of good health.
This year’s fair is themed “Healthy Ever After.” Many of the fair’s 53 exhibitors, in a kid-friendly way, will teach children daily health habits. Puppets will demonstrate how to properly brush and floss. Kids will learn how to make smart, nutritious food choices, and they will be encouraged to get moving and stay active.
Kids will learn about the dangers of tobacco use, as well as how to be good stewards of the environment and their community. Many exhibitors will highlight safety practices.
Kids are encouraged to attend the event wearing their favorite storybook character costumes, clothing, and accessories.
