Feb. 19: Free Fitness Fun Fair for Kids

AURORA – Families and children are invited to enjoy the free fun at the Vaughan Athletic Center on Saturday, Feb. 19, when the Fox Valley Park District will stage its annual Fitness Fun Fair for Kids.

The educational and interactive event runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is free to all families and children. Children will have opportunities to take part in fun and healthy activities that include an inflatable obstacle course, KitFit demos, ZumbAtomic sessions and other activities designed to get kids moving and exercising.

“We want to encourage kids to be active by introducing them to forms of exercise they find fun and invigorating,” said recreation supervisor Tammi Cosola. “By making exercise enjoyable to them, they’re much more likely to develop healthy habits they will carry into adulthood.”

Other highlights include live entertainment, active dancing and contests, with more than 20 vendors on hand to promote personal care and healthy lifestyles.

For more information, call the Vaughan Athletic Center at (630) 907-9600.
