25th Annual Blue Ribbon Kid’s Day to be held April 1

Waushara County’s Blue Ribbon Kid’s Day Committee is making plans to celebrate the 25th anniversary of a popular community event.

Blue Ribbon Kid’s Day, a family fun and resource fair is held in Waushara County each April during Child Abuse Prevention month, will be held on Saturday, April 1, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Parkside Middle School, located at 16th Avenue in Wautoma.

The event features enter-tainment, hands-on activities, and informational exhibits focused on area resources and safety designed especially for families with pre-school through elementary age children. It has been a local tradition since 1992.

“Some of today’s parents remember attending Blue Ribbon Kid’s Day as a child and are excited to share this experience with their own children,” said Jan Novake, one of the events original organizers. “It is such a great event for area children and families, providing a nice mix of family fun and resource information.” Many families agree. Blue Ribbon Kid’s Day attracts nearly 1,000 visitors each year as Waushara County draws attention to April as Child Abuse Prevention Month.
