Best Bet

July 18, 2002|By Lori Sears

Call it a kids' paradise. With more activities, games, sports and entertainment than your kid could ever possibly handle, "Kids Fest 3" at the Maryland State Fairgrounds Saturday is indeed a kids' utopia.

Kids can get physical with carnival games and rides, a 24-foot climbing wall, football-toss, speed-pitch, sandbox, pony rides, jewelry-making, interactive new video games and more. Or they can sit back and watch performances by Bob the Vid-Tech, the Company Elite Dance Studio, a bicycle stunt team and various musicians.

There will be autograph-signings by Baltimore Ravens players, a petting zoo, karate demonstrations and safety tips from McGruff the Crime Dog and police and firefighters.

Kids also can sing at the "Video Karaoke" stand, watch a children's lip-sync contest, participate in science experiments, receive an identification kit, hear stories, watch videos and more.

The event runs 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday at the Maryland State Fairgrounds, York Road, Timonium. Free for kids under 16; $5 for adults. Call 443-279-0320.
