Children's health fair textFor 28 years, northern Michigan community agencies have been participating in the McLaren Northern Michigan Children’s Health Fair. Taking place in April, the “Month of the Young Child,” this free event focuses on education and activities for newborns to 12 year olds.

Providing a fun family atmosphere, the Children’s Health Fair is an educational environment where parents can learn best practices to keep children healthy and safe. The event will be held from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 21 at the Petoskey Middle School, located at 801 Northmen Drive, off of Mitchell Street in Petoskey.

The event will have many activities for parents and children. The loveable snowman, Olaf, will be at the fair from 12:30 -1:30 p.m. Children should bring their capes for an “Action Hero Fun Run” outside (weather permitting), sponsored by the Child Abuse Prevention and Education Council. Other fun activities include crafts, face painting, hands-on learning activities and materials, as well as many prizes raffled off throughout the day. Bring a gently used book and take one home and participate in the Free Cycle BookBin Project.

There is a low-cost lunch available at the event for $3 each or $8 for the family.
