PLAINFIELD— State Sen. Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant (D-Shorewood) will host her annual free Kids’ Fair for elementary students in February. The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 20, at Troy Middle School, 5800 W. Theodore St., Plainfield.
“This continues to be a fun and educational event, which brings area students, parents, and grandparents together on a day when schools are closed,” Bertino-Tarrant said.
Storytelling, live animals and other activities will provide entertainment for children. In addition, free haircuts will be given by the Salon Professional Academy of Shorewood. Special events, such as a martial arts demonstration, musical performance by the Troy Middle School Choir and K9 Demonstration by the Plainfield Police Department, will also take place.
Bertino-Tarrant’s office still has openings for child-centered organizations to participate in this free event. Organizations interested in participating can complete the registration process through Bertino-Tarrant’s website (www.seantorbertinotarrant.com).
