Family Fest

MARCH 3, 2018 • 9am - 2pm

The Clay County Fair & Events Center and Positively Spencer Youth will host the 8th Annual Family Fest at the Clay County Regional Events Center on Saturday, March 3rd from 9:00am to 2:00pm.

Family Fest is free for all to attend and is open to the public.

Families can enjoy activities for all ages and learn what local businesses, groups and organizations can do for families. This year will include two special performances at 11:00am and 1:00pm by The Dollipops, an engaging, high-energy, highly interactive kids’ show.

Other features include Safety City, which will allow families to interact with local law enforcement, firefighters and EMT staff; Spencer Hospital’s “glow germ” hand washing activity; the H.E.A.T. Tactical Vehicle; and Spencer Municipal Utilities “touch a truck” station.

ISU Extension and Outreach Clay County returns with exciting activities for 4-H Find-out Day, including bunny hopping and dog obedience courses. Extension will also feature a FLEx Trailer and Bee-Bots.

STEM activities provided by Iowa Lakes Community College offers an exciting and fun way for kids to have a chance to learn about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. There will also be a KidZone sponsored by Spencer Family YMCA that will have a number of activities including the popular Gaga Pit.

Get ready to sing, dance, and laugh with the engaging, high-energy, highly interactive new kids’ show – The Dollipops!  Dolli and Pop are sisters who have traveled all the way from Sweet Tart City to bring you on a magical and musical road trip that is sure to get kids (and their parents!) moving, grooving, and making memories. From classic beach tunes to current Hollywood and pop hits, Dolli and Pop use music to allow kids the chance to use their imaginations, to sing and dance along, and even to enjoy their very own four and a half minutes of fame!

The Family Fest event, held each year at the Clay County Regional Events Center, includes many non-profit partners and family centered educational opportunities. Partners in planning for this event include Positively Spencer, Spencer Municipal Utilities, the Spencer YMCA, Spencer Hospitals, Iowa Lakes Community College and ISU Extension Clay County.
