The Special Events Building
at the fairgrounds was full of laughter and good times on Thursday, when organizers
invited youngsters to Kids' Day, an afternoon of assorted activities.
There was no registration and no fee to join the fun. Elementary-age
children moved from station to station, blowing bubbles, creating
pictures with foam shapes, dressing up from a closet of colorful
clothes, twirling hula hoops, playing ball toss -- spending a couple
of hours just playing with simple toys and games. Moms and grandmas
could sit and watch or play along. Assistants were on hand,
including Bethany Rea, the 2010 Logan County Fair queen , and newly
crowned 2011 Logan County Fair Queen Kelsi Ubbenga. Spending some
casual time away from her official duties, 2011 Little Miss Julia
Collins joined in the fun.
