Good Times at Kidapalooza

 

With a variety of contests, games, and educational booths set up at the event, which lasted from 10am-2pm, the annual Kidapalooza offered local youths and their families a great way to spend a Saturday together.

Some of the groups that participated in making the festival a success are as follows: Bouncing B’s (bouncy gauntlet); the Madisonville Fire Department (fire truck and the Kid’s Safety House, which teaches kids how to get out of a burning building safely); DARE (handprints/fingerprints and child ID forms); the Mid-West Kentucky Chapter of the Red Cross (refreshments, organization information, their emergency van, and more); acclaimed children’s author, Shelly Braeuner (showed kids how to make Cheerio dogs and displayed her award winning book, “The Great Dog Wash”); Jumpin’ Jaguars (a jump rope/double-dutch team); the Hopkins County Health Department (tobacco and its harmful effects education); the 4H Club (corn hole games); the Murray State University Ambassadors (assistance with the Red Cross and 4H corn hole game areas); the Health Care Students of America; Madisonville’s Daymar College (several games, including Halloween golf/croquet); and the Hopkins County Amateur Radio Association (allowed attendants to see and learn about their Emergency Communications Vehicle).

In addition, kids were able to get their faces painted, draw on the sidewalk and road with chalk, shoot some hoops at a basketball game, make balloon animals, watch (or race in) an oil can soap box derby, and much, much more.
