Main Street Pineville has been hard at work preparing for what Director Jacob Roan hopes to be the best KidsFest yet. KidsFest is scheduled to take place on July 31.
“We have a wonderful team who has helped to organize what I hope will be the best KidsFest to date,” said Roan. “The event will be a great end to the summer for children before they head back to school.”
Roan says the focus has been on a family atmosphere and hopes to see smiling children at the event.
“We work hard to create a family atmosphere with local churches and businesses,” continued Roan. “All of the work pays off when you see smiles on the faces of children — who we often forget, face their own worries without the understanding we as adults have.”
KidsFest 2014 is open to everyone and everything is free for children.
“We extend an invitation to KidsFest 2014 to all of our surrounding neighbors,” concluded Roan.
The fun begins at 6 p.m. and ends with a free outdoor movie at 9 p.m. The Pineville Rotary Club is sponsoring all of the inflatables plus an inflatable at the MSP farmer’s market on Thursday. The Pineville Kiwanis Club will be providing free hot dogs and a drink to all children and adults can purchase a hot dog dinner. Entertainment is lined up throughout the evening and includes karate demos, a maze, inflatables and at 9 p.m. a children’s movie on the inflatable screen on the courthouse lawn.
Anyone who sells children’s clothing or items geared toward children can contact Roan at 606-499-0660 as he is still accepting vendors, volunteers and donors.
