Free CAP Kids’ Fair Set for June 1 & 2
LACASA’s Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Council will hold its annual CAP Kids’ Fair on Saturday, June 1, and Sunday, June 2, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Pinckney’s Art in the Park Festival.
“This is a fun and free event for all families.” said CAP Council Coordinator, Holly Naylor. “Parents can learn important information like child development and water safety, and the kids get a free ice cream, free book, and lots of craft projects to do with their families.”
The CAP Kids’ Fair also partners with other non-profits at the Art in the Park festival on a Treasure Hunt scavenger hunt. Kids and parents who visit each CAP Kids’ Fair exhibitor and participating Art in the Park nonprofit booths will earn a raffle ticket to go toward a prize.
Treasure Hunt raffle prizes include a bicycle, a ‘Positively Pinckney’ gift basket, a week of summer camp at the Howell Nature Center, and children’s toys. The last treasure maps will be given out Sunday at 3 p.m. and the prize drawing will take place on Sunday at 4 p.m. Winners need not be present at the drawing and will have one week to collect their prize from the LACASA Center office in Howell.
Families also can enjoy Art in the Park festivities, which feature original and unique art from over 100 vendors, a variety of food and beverage options, and a cornhole tournament with a $500 cash prize. Art in the Park is held in the Putnam Township Square in downtown Pinckney.
Exhibitors for the 2019 CAP Kids’ Fair include LACASA CAP Council, Great Start Livingston, LESA Early Childhood Services, Livingston County Health Department; The Connection Youth Services, Hartland Aquatics, Thriving Minds; the Pinckney Library, Livingston County Community Alliance, and Catholic Charities.
