A Day for Kids
- Posted July 18, 2011
We’re doing a free kids day Saturday Aug 27th at downtown at Heritage plaza. We have an office right across the street and we’ve talked to the city about doing an event. They are blocking off some of the streets and letting us set up pretty much anywhere downtown. We have a few food vendors coming in like candy apples, cotton candy, wings & fries, etc. We want to make something fun for kids to do before summer ends.
We’ll be having kids karaoke, magic shows, an Elvis impersonator, the fire department is bringing fire trucks, humane society is bringing animals, Mcintyre’s candies is doing a tour to show how they make candy, sheer power is doing face painting, habitat for humanity is coming in to do crafts, Aaron’s is bringing a big TV & XBOX to play, and we’re working on more.
It will be from 11am to 11pm
We would like to run a movie after it gets dark. We have a projector, now we’re working on a screen.
All the day cares in town are sending flyers home for their kids parents.
We would like to run some bands beside the old Viponds building on the stage for the day but we are short staffed. If some of the rockpage community wants to get together and do a free live outdoor thing downtown, we already have the day rented. It has to be family friendly so nothing heavy or swearing.
If you would like to volunteer or have something you would like to do for kids, please send us an email or call us at our office. We’re putting our print work together now.
If any business or individual wants to sponsor email us or call the office as well.
So far Sheetz, Sheer Power, The Press Box, Mcintyre’s Candies are sponsors.
Our favorite Heavy Metal Hippies, Mose Giganticus (Relapse Records) performs Saturday, July 10th.
