Families have fun on Fall Fest Kids’ Day
The park across from Zephyr Cove Elementary School is going to be filled to the brim with family fun on Oct. 6. Fall Fest
Kids’ Day will take place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., and the event promises to have something for everyone. Attendees will be treated to everything from topnotch entertainment to delicious homemade food. Youths will enjoy games, crafts and activities sponsored by community members.
The event, which is a new fund-raiser for ZCES, offers several different forms of free entertainment to the public. Get In The Act Youth Theater Company will present two different plays: “Sibling Switch” at 1:30 p.m. and “The Abandoned House” at 3 p.m. The Mighty Cub Dancers will be singing and dancing at the Fall Fest, and Tahoe Entertainment and Events will be providing a live DJ to entertain families as they participate in games and crafts.
Craft booths will include sand art, cornhusk dolls, and building
scarecrows. Kids desiring to make their own scarecrows should bring a shirt, a pair of pants, and a hat with them to the Fall Fest. An array of foods and gourmet baked goods will be available at the event and kids of all ages will savor the cotton candy and caramel apples with M & M’s that will be for sale. Families interested in lunch can look forward to homemade tortillas made right before their eyes as well as many other delectable options.
