Now in its fourth year, the Ripon Noon Kiwanis Children’s Fair drew hundreds to Barlow Park Elementary School Saturday morning.
At the event, children could enjoy games, a bouncy castle, a visit from K-9 officer Dani (with officer Trevor Hanke), a performance by the Scott Street Puppeteers and face-painting.
Meanwhile, parents could visit with numerous area organizations such as Cub Scouts, local preschools, a dentist, pediatrician and other groups, or find gently used clothing in the Clothing Swap.
Attendance at the event was the strongest Noon Kiwanis has had in the four years the event has been held.
New for 2010 was a visit from a school bus and ambulance, both of which children and adults could explore.
