Fairytale Town to hold wellness fest

By
From page B12 | April 12, 2013 |

Fairytale Town, 3901 Land Park Drive in Sacramento, will highlight active and healthy living for families at the first annual Sutter Children’s Center Wellness Festival on Saturday, April 13 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The one-day festival is free to the public thanks to the generous support of Sutter Children’s Center in Sacramento.

The festival will feature health screenings, gardening and nutrition workshops, fun physical games and more.

Sutter’s medical personnel will be on hand to answer questions and provide information on healthy childhood development.

More than 20 local health organizations will also be offering activities, games and information on healthy lifestyles. Activities include making smoothies while riding a stationary bike, stretching and warm-up exercises, an obstacle course and more.

“We’re excited to partner with Sutter Children’s Center, Sacramento, in highlighting the important role of active play in healthy childhood development,” said Kathy Fleming, executive director of Fairytale Town. “Play is important work for children as it contributes to their cognitive, physical, social and emotional well-being. In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics recently declared ‘active play is so central to child development it should be included in the very definition of childhood.’”

In addition to the fun learning activities, families can see a live theater performance in the Children’s Theater. Sacramento’s B Street Theatre will present the top five plays selected from the Fantasy Festival XXVII, the theater’s annual playwriting festival and contest for students in third through eighth grades. Show times are 12:30 and 2:30 p.m.. Theater tickets are $1 for members and $2 for nonmembers. Radio Disney will also be onsite hosting music, games and prizes.
