Melville, NY - April 25th, 2014 - The 4th Annual All Kids Fair takes place on Sunday, April 27, 2014, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Melville Marriott. 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, birthday party ideas, schools, camps, health and wellness products and services, special needs, financial services, places to play, day cares, and tutoring.
In four speaker rooms, some classes will be focused on the adults and others will be geared towards children (younger and older). Topics for the adults include childhood obesity and holistic solutions for autism. Classes for the children and their families to enjoy together include hip hop, gymnastics, music, crafts, and sports classes.
For their attendees’ convenience, a new addition to this year’s event is free valet parking. Also, QuackerJack of the Long Island Ducks will be visiting and taking photos with the kids, and a juggler from the Big Apple Circus will be entertaining.
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 desirable prizes, such as Long Island Ducks tickets.
Penelope’s Odyssey will once again offer simple cheek swabbing of adults for the lifesaving National Bone Marrow Registry. At last year’s event, Lori Schneider of Penelope’s Odyssey shared that she “enjoyed the day and all the people we met. I am amazed at how many wonderful businesses and organizations you had represented.” Last year, 26 altruistic people were swabbed, and she hopes to beat that number this year. Other non-profits include Girl Scout Troop 954, who will be selling Girl Scout cookies, and Strong Island Kids, who will be providing face painting.
Long Island Parent Magazine, Your Local Kids Source, All About Kids, LongIsland.com, and Long Island Island Center for Vein Treatment sponsor this year’s All Kids Fair.
Tickets for ages 3 and up are only $5, no charge for 2 and under, and there is free admission for grandparents when accompanied by parent and child with tickets.
