Play Smart! Grow Strong! Wasco County Children's Fair 2013

April 23, 2013

Child Care Partners and the Early Childhood Committee of the Wasco County Commission on Children and Families are pleased to announce our annual FREE Children’s Fair 2013. The Fair will be held on Saturday May 18, 2013 from 10 am - 2pm at the City Park on Union and 5th in The Dalles.

The focus of the Fair is to promote awareness about the stages of child growth and learning through play. There are over 20 community partners registered to provide learning activities for children and ideas for parents.

Families will be given a “passport” and invited to follow a Learning and Growing path with zones and activities for each stage of a child’s development. At the four and five year old zone, preschools will be on hand to share information about their programs and how they support children in getting ready for Kindergarten. Families who get their “passports” stamped in each zone can enter to win a Family Pool Pass for the summer!

An event stage emceed by Randy Haines will host child and family entertainment. Local favorites Victor Johnson and Dr. Steve McLennon will be signing and drumming.

The Kiwanis Key and Builder clubs are back to provide a light lunch for a family friendly price, or bring a picnic!

Support from our community partners and sponsors have helped the fair grow in the past few years.  North Wasco County School District #21 – Safe Schools, Healthy Students grant; Sawyers Just Ask Rental; and Northern Wasco County Parks and Recreation are continuing to be sponsors; plus all of the organizations that host booths.

THANK YOU sponsors and community partners who make this a “Gotta Be There” event!
