Approved JBT 2016 Kids Fair pictureOn Presidents Day when school was not in session, State Sen. Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant (D-Shorewood) held a fun, educational event for area students.

More than 50 organizations participated in Bertino-Tarrant’s Kids’ Fair.

Children in attendance were entertained by storytelling, live animals, crafts, treats, mascots and characters. Free haircuts were also provided and special events, such as a martial arts demonstration, dance performance and musical performance by DUCAP’s Rise UP, also occurred.

“I would like to thank all of the children, parents and organizations that participated in my Kids’ Fair,” Bertino-Tarrant said. “This event was a collaborative community effort to ensure students throughout my district could be entertained at a safe location.”

Bertino-Tarrant plans on hosting the Kids’ Fair again next year.

Details on Bertino-Tarrant’s other events this year can be found on the upcoming events section of her website.
