DIXON — From toddlers to teenagers, the Dixon May Fair is a whirlwind of excitement for kids who seem to be in perpetual motion. In addition to carnival rides and fair food, there is plenty of fun that doesn’t cost a cent once you enter the fair.
The Woodland Healthcare Kids Zone is home to activities that involve kid power and where they are encouraged to creatively play in Kids Town USA. They can try out a Hula Hoop, bowl in a miniature alley, draw, make puzzles and even make music.
The Extreme Canines Stunt Dog Show, sponsored by Star 106.9 radio, is an amazing show that takes place several times daily (see schedule) that will entertain the whole family. The dogs that have been adopted from shelters have been lovingly trained to perform high-flying tricks and incredible stunts.
A visit to the livestock barns is a must-do for kids who may not have seen farm animals close up. The 4-H, FFA and Grange youth who have their animals in the barns are happy to answer questions. You will see these youngsters and teens feeding, grooming and caring for their animals, then participating in the show rings to see who has done the best job.
All of the music and strolling entertainment at the Dixon May Fair is free and family friendly. Kids will giggle from their visit with Flo the Clown and will be fascinated as the Procrastinators make ordinary household items into percussion instruments.
Kids Day is Friday, May 9, and all children age 12 and younger are admitted for free. Kids Day media sponsor is KDND The End 107.9 radio station. Parents can get $2 off of adult tickets from 3 to 5 p.m. Friday, May 9 by bringing two cans of food for the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano Counties.
