Kid's Day Success!

Updated: Jul 27

The preparation and planning paid off last Saturday at the Union County Fair Kid's Day event, it was a SUCCESS! There was much to do for those that attended our day full of fun filled activities!

Crafts where hosted throughout the day such as potato and cookie decorating. Kids were crafted pool noodle ponies, and ribbon crowns! The fair grounds were flooded with face paint master pieces!

Competition started early in the morning for contestants taking part in the baby contest. The Pedal Pull was a pool of participants by age divisions with friendly spectators cheering each on as they pushed to pedal the farthest distance! Later, a kids pie eating and bubble blowing contest were hosted.

Director of Public Health, Zach Woods, was present fitting helmets to children of Union County in promotion of the importance of safety during summer outdoor activity. The pediatrics department hosted a 'Teddy Bear Clinic' where kids were able to name and provide care to their new friends!

Southern Prairie Family Fitness Center contributed a fun, physical human bubble activity for kids to participate in! The Creston and Afton's Fire Departments hosted water activities, combatting the heat of the day! There were Lego derby cars, books, and bike giveaways. The Little Farmer's Barnyard was in full operation for kids to take part in educational activities. The Afton Lions were on site and provided the inflatable obstacle course and bounce house for the day!

We want to Thank all the sponsors and volunteers that made this community collaboration such a success!
