Kids Fest Planned for April at SWOSU


Kids Fest 2011 is planned for Saturday, April 9, from 1-4 p.m. at the Wellness Center on the campus of Southwestern Oklahoma State University, and organizers ask area residents to mark their calendars.

Kids Fest 2011 is a free family event for children (babies to age 8) and parents/grandparents/siblings, according to Kimberley Kelly of the SWOSU Department of Education.  Everyone is invited, and there will be free hot dogs, games, door prizes and many resources available to help families.

The activities will include inflatable games, face painting, finger printing from the OSBI, rock wall climbing, golf, and a visit from Smokey the Bear. According to Kelly, last year's event had more than 1,000 in attendance, and they expect more this year.

The event is sponsored by the SWOSU-Western Early Childhood Association-Student Organization.
