Kid-A-Palooza is Aug. 3 in Grantville

A Kid-A-Palooza festival is Aug. 3 in Grantville.

Sponsored by Grantville Downtown Development Authority in conjunction with Glanton Elementary School, the event will raise money for beautification projects for downtown Grantville and to purchase school supplies for those students at Glanton Elementary and children less fortunate than others.

Kid-A-Palooza is an art festival, featuring fire and safety programs, face painting, music, art projects, demonstrations, and lots of fun. More than 26 exhibitors are expected, including food vendors, clowns, sports and sporting goods, clothing vendors, ice cream, kids drinks, churches, and local businesses.

For details on Kid-A-Palooza, including how to donate or become an exhibitor, contact Rebecca Campbell, Board Chair, at 404-431-0831 or grantvillerebecca@gmail.com.
