Weather Alert  

LIGHT SNOW AND SPOTTY LIGHT FREEZING RAIN POSSIBLE THIS EVENING As temperatures slowly rise this evening, light snow should quickly change over to rain across Long Island, New York City and the suburbs just north and west, and across coastal and southeastern Connecticut, with at least a coating of accumulation, and as much as an inch farther away from the coast. As precipitation mixes with and changes to rain, road temperatures in these areas may still be below freezing even as air temperatures slowly rise to the mid and upper 30s, and a light glaze of ice may be possible on untreated surfaces. So plan on slippery conditions this evening even as temperatures slowly rise.

East Hills, NY - April 19th, 2013 - The 3rd Annual All Kids Fair takes place on Sunday, April 28, 2013, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Melville Marriott - Long Island.  The event is dedicated to bringing together individuals, businesses, and non-profit organizations with children from birth through high school age and their families.

The All Kids Fair is part education and activities expo and part health and wellness fair.  In over 80 exhibitor spaces, many available programs and services will be presented, including after school activities, nutrition, special needs, camps, financial services, dental health, birthday party ideas, day cares, and tutoring.

In four speaker rooms, some classes will be held just for adults and others geared towards children.  Topics for the adults include Travel with Kids, Reading Comprehension, and College Funding.  Classes for the children and their families to enjoy together include music, archery, sports, and martial arts. 

Many non-profits will be participating in this year's event.  Those who bring non-perishable food to benefit The INN (Interfaith Nutrition Network) will receive raffle tickets to win valuable prizes.  Penelope's Odyssey will offer simple cheek swabs for the lifesaving national bone marrow registry.  Other non-profits include the American Airpower Museum, CHI Au Pair USA, Mid-Island Y JCC, YMCA of Long Island, and Friendship Circle.

At the 2012 event, attendee, Joyce MenDell, described her experience.  "My kids as well as the grownups had a great time at the fair.  This was one of the best I have been to from the way it was organized to all the different vendors you had."  

A new addition to this year’s event is a babysitting room, which will be free with an admission ticket.  There will also be many free activities, including cookie decorating, face painting, balloon animals, health screenings, breastfeeding support, plus free food samples and mini-massages for adults.  A clown from the Big Apple Circus will entertain, and beauty queen Amy Marchany, crowned Ms. Royal America 2011-2012, will attend.

Long Island Parent Magazine, Your Local Kids Source, Natural Awakenings LI, All About Kids, YOLO Yogurt, and Hulafrog Town of Hempstead sponsor this year’s All Kids Fair.
