Families and children are invited to the Vaughan Athletic Center on Saturday, Feb. 18, when the Fox Valley Park District will stage its annual Fitness Fun Fair for Kids.
The educational and interactive event runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is free to all who attend. Children will have opportunities to take part in fun and healthy activities that include an obstacle course, KitFit demo, basketball toss, age-divided bounce houses and many other activities to get kids moving and exercising.
“We encourage kids to be active by introducing them to forms of exercise they find fun and invigorating,” said event supervisor Stevie Michell. “By making exercise enjoyable, kids are much more likely to develop healthy habits they will carry into adulthood.”
Entertainment will take place throughout the event, including Kids Karate Club demonstrations, KidFit Instruction by Vaughan’s personal trainers and a new baby crawl contest. Other scheduled features include WBIG Fox Sports Radio with special giveaways and continuous tunes provided by a live DJ.
In addition, vendors and local businesses – ranging from sports camps to health and fitness professionals – will be on hand to promote active pursuits and healthy lifestyles. Vendors include The Kids Golf Foundation, Boys Baseball of Aurora, Plexus Worldwide, Do or Dye Design Salon and more.
