Healthy Family Fair
Child Abuse Prevention Services, Marshall County ISU Extension, and YSS host the Healthy Family Fair which aims to encourage heathy habits and promote learning in children and young families by engaging them in a fun and interactive way. Children can get their picture with Dora and Diego, practice their soccer skills with the MCC soccer team, and get a balloon animal from Tulip. While the kids are busy with all the great hands-on activities, parents can get more information about resources in the community and even sign their child up for preschool!
In addition to Dora and Diego, families can expect longtime favorite attractions to return to the main stage including storytelling by William the Storyteller and a magic show by Tulip! We are also excited to welcome the Science Center of Iowa to this year’s Healthy Family Fair. The Science Center will be presenting their BOOM! Assembly program on the main stage from 11:45-12:15. When not on the stage, the Science Center will also have a booth with several fun mini-experiments for kids to get hands on with science!
