The day promises to be filled with lots of fun activities for the children.
“Some of the stuff we have lined up for kids on this day are reading and writing competitions, storytelling, art and craft,” said Mercy Wainaina of Kids Festival.
Other activities fior the inugural one day event will include cake baking whereby children will learn how to bake and ice cakes. There will also be sports challenges such as tennis and swimming.
Children are therefore advised to carry appropriate sports wear.
Being held on Saturday 28th February, the event will run from 8am to 6pm and has limited slots of 300 kids.
For a fee of Sh3,500 for children and Sh2,500 for adults one will be able to attend the event.
“This price also includes the transportation fee which will see us leave the offices at 8am,” remarked Mercy.
Those attending the event are expected to the the Kids Festival offices on Muthangari Drive house number 40.
