SAPCC announces date for 23rd Annual Family Festival held at Riverside School

Springfield Area Parent Child Center is pleased to present its 23rd Annual Family Festival will once again be held at Riverside School on April 16th, from 9:30 – Noon.  Our Family festival is held in conjunction with the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and their Week of the Young Child Celebration.  The theme for this annual event is a celebration of early learning, young children, their teachers and their families. 

This event has become something of a spring tradition for families in and around the Springfield area, and we’ll be bringing back lots of familiar activities and exhibitors as well as some exciting new ones.  We will once again be conducting the Scholastic Book Sale during the festival, featuring “Buy One, Get One Free” books for pre-schoolers as well as grade school reading levels.  Also back by popular demand will be the Springfield Police Department issuing free ID’s for all children accompanied by their parents.

Entertainment will be provided in two sessions by returning favorite “Lindsay & her Puppet Pals” and we will have lots of local exhibitors sharing information and providing activities regarding early learning for children and their families.  Roving characters Elsa and Olaf will be returning this year, bringing Anna along as well, for impromptu photo ops throughout the morning.  The kids really love this, as do parents and grandparents too!  SAPCC will also be hosting a photo booth as a new attraction this year, with digital fun photos captured at the fair available for download later to add to the photo fun! Be sure to save the date and come and visit us next month!
