The annual Safe and Healthy Kids Fair is set for Saturday, April 28 from 10am-2pm in the Homer High School commons. This is a free, fun event for children of all ages to focus on safety, health and wellness. The fair offers more than 30 booths and stations with hands on activities and demonstrations. Loads of door prizes are given away throughout the free fair, including the grand prize giveaways at 1:30pm of a tricycle and bicycles.
A bike rodeo will take place in the school parking lot from 10am-1:00pm. Kids can bring their bikes for a free inspection to get ready for safe summer fun. Helmets are required, and are available for purchase on site. Free test rides on the drunk-driving simulator ATV cart are offered throughout the day in the parking lot.
Stations include circus arts, a teddy bear clinic, hearing tests, face painting, water safety, giveaways and more. Numerous summer programs offer sign–up at the fair. Bookmobile will be on-site! Demonstrations on the stage include Zumba, Preludes, and more!
This year’s theme is “Giving Back”! Donations of non-perishable food and sundries will be accepted for the Homer Food Pantry and diapers of all sizes for Sprout Family Services.
Food will be available for purchase. Proceeds from food sales benefit the Safe and Healthy Kids Coalition, a group of local agencies supporting the health and wellbeing of our community.
