Kid-A-Palooza returning to Grantville

Kid-A-Palooza is returning to downtown Grantville – offering fun and school supplies to youngsters before school resumes for the 2014-15 year.

The event will be held Aug. 2 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. The Grantville Downtown Development Authority is sponsoring this year’s activities, in conjunction with the Z is for zombie LLC.

The “kids festival in downtown Grantville” will “benefit the Grantville GED program and as well as community projects for the Grantville DDA,” said Rebecca Campbell, one of the organizers of Kid-A-Palooza.

“This family friendly event will feature games, face painting, fire engines, crafts, Disney TV characters, entertainment, a special Home Depot workshop for kids, and much more,” Campbell said. The more will include “free back-to-school supplies, while they last.”
