What is Kids Fest?

Each year, thousands of children and their families take part in engaging and educational activities at WNIN's Kids Fest. This is an event WNIN looks forward to every year. This free family event will feature hands-on activities, special photo opportunities, and more. And as always, every child will go home with a FREE book from WNIN and Rotary Club of Evansville
