Free Fun at Marble Falls Children’s Day Celebration
MARBLE FALLS — This year’s Children’s Day Celebration will be out of this world — sort of — as the Space Ball Ride takes off.
The new feature and the rest of the fun take place 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, April 15, at Johnson Park, 230 Ave. J South. Admission is free for children up to the eighth grade.
Maria Lim of the Children’s Day Celebration committee said seeing the joy on the faces of the families is why the committee works so hard to ensure this event happens every year.
“Our satisfaction comes from seeing the smiles on the children's faces and seeing whole families enjoy a day of free fun and food,” she said. “In addition, it is a day that our whole community comes together in honor of the younger generation, who will be the future of this community.”
The committee ordered 1,950 children’s T-shirts to hand out. Adults can purchase their own shirts (50 are available) for a $10 donation.
Children’s Day Celebration includes games such as putt-putt golf, bean bag and ring tosses, and soccer shots as well as face, nail, and hair painting.
In addition, children will also have an opportunity to learn about hygiene, crime prevention, fire safety, saving money, and the benefits of healthy eating and exercising.
Other booths will let them enjoy arts and crafts, gardening, literature, and more.
Children’s music artist Joe McDermott will provide the entertainment.
When children get hungry, there are free hamburgers, hot dogs, and chips as well as ice cream, snow cones, nachos, popcorn, cotton candy, and other snack items.
Door prizes will be given away, but children must be present to win.
Lim said Children’s Day Celebration will happen rain or shine. In the event of severe weather, the event will be moved to the Marble Falls Middle School cafeteria, 1511 Pony Circle Drive.
Volunteers are still needed for set up, to help with registration and staff booths, and clean up.
