The Kids Funfest and Safety Day will go on tomorrow rain or shine, according to officials planning the event. In case of rain, activities will be held in the Civic Center gymnasium starting at 11 a.m. and going until 2 p.m.

All activities are free for families attending, and include inflatables, games, crafts, artistic performances and safety-themed attractions. Presentations include signs of drug and alcohol abuse, bullying and child abuse prevention, as well as assorted children’s health and safety topics. Food booths provide free snacks and drinks with each child under age 18 receiving a free hot dog meal as long as supplies last.

Funfest is a result of the combined efforts of the city of McMinnville, Children’s Advocacy Center, Kids of the Community and Families in Crisis. More than 2,000 people attended last year’s event and over 400 free meals were served to the children of the community.
