This year’s "Read and Picnic at the Fair" event will focus on early literacy and will have many opportunities for children ages 0 – 8 years old to engage in fun activities. Some of these activities include: a petting zoo, face painting station, bouncy house, storytelling, book exchange and giveaways, free raffles, live music, karate, and dance demonstrations.

Community resources will also be made available at this event. Some of these opportunities will include involvement with fire and police crews, as well as prevention services such as vision and dental screenings, and fingerprinting for child safety.

The public is highly encouraged to come to this event with their families. Be sure to bring your lunch and a blanket and enjoy the festivities!
