Kansas KidsFest: Attendance Expected to Top 1,000 at Children's Event


Montano, Liz, The Topeka Capital-Journal


It's every child's fantasy. More than 50,000 square feet filled with slides, bounce houses, balloon art, princesses, face-painting, laser tag ... the list goes on and on.

Parents will appreciate it as well, according to Kansas KidsFest organizer Zach Haney, who says there's educational value to all the entertainment, not to mention something for moms and dads.

Haney recently sat down at the Kansas Expocentre to talk about Saturday's giant party for kids.

Q: Is this the first Kansas KidsFest?

Haney: It's the first one we've organized. There was an event by the same name several years ago, but we're totally different. We're trying to incorporate educational aspects to the festival and showcase local businesses at the same time.

Q: It sounds like there's going to be a ton of activities. Can you name a few?

Haney: There will be. We'll have activity zones, creation stations and entertainment throughout. On the Carnival Guy Party Rental side, we're providing inflatable attractions: bounce houses, obstacle courses, slides, all those kind of fun things. There's laser tag, bubble soccer and a live performance stage with a deejay from Solid Rock Sound Machine, dance parties and activities.

Q: What age range of children would this be most suited for?

Haney: There's something for all age of kids. It's a very diverse group, but anyone under 15 will have a great time with all the activities. We're even planning a baby crawl contest.

Q: That's definitely catering to the youngest attendee. What kinds of things are planned for us big kids -- the adults?

Haney: We'll have around 30 exhibitors, a real mixed variety, from retail shops to realtors to children's products and books. We're ultimately trying to share a fun side of all these businesses, to allow them to showcase what they're capable of in a different setting.

To name a few, Ballet Midwest, Peggy's Tax and Accounting, Alorica, Design Home, Child Care Aware, Children's Miracle Network and Topeka's St. …
