Fall Festival: Hands-on fun planned at the Kids Corner


By Chris Bavender

The Kids Corner at the Fall Festival will once again be filled with a variety of resources for parents and hands-on activities for everyone.

“It’s designed to be a fun place for families to go and have fun with their kids,” said Lee Ann Balta, who organized the Kids Corner vendors.

There are 10 vendors this year that include Boone County Advocacy Center, Mad Science, Joyful Noise, Usborne Books and more. There will also be face painting, a balloon artist and a booth where kids can make bead bracelets.

“It increases [kids’] creativity and it exposes them to a variety of creative venues like music and art and science,” Balta said. “Parents can take this opportunity and watch their child’s interests and then further develop those interests at home.”

Balta has received positive feedback on the Kids Corner at past festivals.

“[Children] are always excited to come and try what we have to share with them and take it home,” she said. “The Kids Corner booths are designed for them to be able to touch things and explore things.”

Balta said she’s always looking for new and engaging vendors to promote their services to the community.

“Maybe if someone hadn’t thought it would be a venue for them, they might want to consider coming and sharing their talents with the community,” she said.
