KIDZ ZONE…A Wildly Popular 2-Day Feature of Fall Festival Returns

According to Leanetta Pryor, Fall Festival Board member, this year’s Kidz Zone will offer more fun than ever for various age levels…carnival games like pencil pull, duck pond, ring toss, balloon pop, the petting zoo as well as face and hair painting stations for the younger set under the Kidz Zone tent…the Texas Snake Show and Professor Newton’s Science Show nearby …bounce houses, horse rides and Mechanical Bull near Kidz Zone…popular life-size Water Bubble Balls and a Pony Hop race, plus a barrel train making a continuous route around Kidz Zone. Adult volunteers will supervise the fun at Kidz Zone. Leanetta says it provides the perfect solution for parents, with this centralized location as a meeting point with their children while also getting to visit other traditional interests like the Creative Arts Contest, Arts and Crafts Fair and the trade show inside the Civic Center.

Tickets for Kidz Zone attractions can be purchased at five for $1, with most of the younger-age games accepting tickets for admission. A few of the others accept cash.  The Carnival and Kidz Zone will be open during the final two days of the 2017 Fall Festival…Friday October 27 between 10am and 6pm and on Saturday October 28 between 9am- and5pm.
