SUBMITTED PRESS RELEASE
The Hendricks County area is filled with talented kids who love to perform. The Biz Academy of Musical Theatre in Avon welcomes sixty children ages 6-12 from all over the area as they tell the tale of Pinocchio on stage February 26, 27, 28 and March 4 & 5.
In "Disney's My Son Pinocchio JR.," the classic tale of toymaker Geppetto’s little wooden puppet is given new life. This new musical, which retells the classic Disney story from Geppetto’s perspective, features the beloved classic songs “When You Wish Upon a Star” and “I’ve Got No Strings,” alongside a host of new songs by Oscar- and Grammy Award-winner Stephen Schwartz.
This year, Easter falls on Sunday, March 27, 2016, and many organizations throughout Hendricks County offer Easter egg hunts and other activities for OUR KIDS during the month of March.
Here is a list of Easter egg hunts and activities that I know of that are taking place within Hendricks County for 2016.
As always, if I have overlooked an event that you know of, please contact me and let me know so that I can add it to the list!
It's closing in on that time of year when parents of preschoolers get a giant lump in their throats and prepare to sign their little ones up for kindergarten.
Hendricks County public schools are starting to announce their kindergarten roundup and registration dates for the 2016-17 school year, so if you have a kiddo headed for the bright lights of kindergarten -- or know someone who does -- here we go.
The 2016 Hendricks County Community Youth Fair that They're Our Kids cohosted with Macaroni Kid - Hendricks is in the books!
A heartfelt THANK YOU goes out to all 55 of our vendors and all 1,542 people who visited the Hendricks County 4-H Fairgrounds and Conference Complex to experience the Youth Fair yesterday! Meghan Stritar of Macaroni Kid - Hendricks and I had no way of predicting how many people would attend, and we are both thrilled by how many folks turned out, even in the frigid temperatures!
As with any event that I help plan and execute, I'm making notes on things that worked well and things that could use improvement for next year. (Without hesitation, Meghan and I agree that there will definitely be a next year!) But I need more feedback than what I experienced first-hand.
So here is a request for feedback -- in the form of two quick and easy polls and a request for a comment -- from all Villagers who attended the Hendricks County Community Youth Fair on Feb. 13.
Hopefully by now you've heard of the Hendricks County Community Youth Fair that They're Our Kids is co-hosting with Macaroni Kid - Hendricks this Saturday, Feb. 13 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Hendricks County 4-H Fairgrounds and Conference Center in Danville.
Ever since last year's Hendricks County Youth Sports Fair that we hosted together at Danville Community High School was such a big success, we've been talking about hosting a bigger youth fair that encompasses all sorts of organizations, resources and opportunities for Hendricks County youth.
Meghan Stritar of Macaroni Kid - Hendricks was able to secure us the Exposition Hall at the Fairgrounds, and we've spent months since that time planning this event.
With the Hendricks County Community Youth Fair coming up this weekend, I want to let everyone know what we have on tap.
