Join creative force at 2013 ‘Kid’s Fest’

Island Rec is seeking local organizations to help make the 23rd Annual Children’s Festival a success by hosting an activity that reflects the theme of this year’s event: ¡Attention! Creation Zone!

The 2013 Children’s Festival is Saturday, May 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the fairgrounds in Friday Harbor.

The theme underscores the personality of this year’s festival, designed to give children free rein in using their imaginations to build and create with their own hands. The Imagine Children’s Museum is providing science and engineering projects, and other special guests are expected to contributed various building materials as well.

Sought-after activities will help foster the imagination, inspire an interest in design or allow for hands-on construction. Direct inquiries and ideas for activities to Island Rec Director Sally Thomsen,, or Recreation Specialist Jason Davis,; or contact Island Rec at 378-4953, or
