Preparations are in the making for the fourth annual Kid Fest: Coming Together in Love, on August 16.  It will be held once again at the Tri-County Fairgrounds in Mountain Grove.  Vendors from both Texas and Wright counties are signing up for participation in this successful summer event.  With its block party feel, everyone is signing up, some for the fourth year in a row, to come and have fun with the area families.  BACA, devoted to help victims of abuse, will be attending again thrilling everyone with their parading motorcycles.  

“One” the Christian rock band from the Plato/Houston area is returning for the third year to rock with great praise and worship songs. There will be ponies and a train to ride, aerial water to cool everyone, and hot dogs, watermelon, cookies and other great fairway treats to enjoy.  Everything is free at Kid Fest.

This year the starting time has changed.  The festival will run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. due to the likely possibility of Ozark-August heat. There will be a flag ceremony to open the event just prior to 10AM.   The vendors are to be ready and set up by 9 a.m. If your business, church, civic organization or social work agency would like to come, please contact the Director, Rita Foster, area advocate for Christos House at 417-252-0829 for sign-up information.  This is a worthwhile event to support.
