A parade will kick off the event at 11:30a.m., starting at Third and Church and ending at North Park. At the "Kid’s Day" event everything is just 25 cents. That includes all games, kart rides, hot dogs, popcorn, cotton candy, sno-cones, drinks, and so much more.
All proceeds from the "Kid’s Day" event will be used to fund Corn Belt Shrine Club activities, including the Shriner’s Hospitals for Children.
