Gather up the family and head to Century II Expo Hall Saturday for the 14th annual KidFest, a full day of fun. Here's what you'll find at KidFest this year:
1) Costumed characters such as the Pink Panther, Garfield, Curious George and Clifford the Big Red Dog will be on hand to chat with kids. They'll also be entertained by magicians, clowns and the Bubble Man.
2) Kids can play on inflatables, watch stage shows and participate in a child ID program put on by the Wichita Police Department and Sedgwick County Sheriff's Department.
3) Vendors and organizations representing companies that target kids and families will be at the event to distribute information and show their products and services.
4) KidFest is aimed at kids 10 and under, and their parents. Each year, about 6,000 to 8,000 people attend the one-day event, which is sponsored by Clear Channel Radio.
Hours for KidFest are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $6 for adults and $2 for kids 10 and under. Coupons worth $1 off kids' admission can be obtained at all Sonic Drive-ins and Capital Federal banks.
