KidFest is returning Sept. 15 to Clifton, an event organizers say helps unite the community for family-friendly fun.
"The purpose of the festival is to bring together families of the greater Clifton area for food, fun and community," CBA Chairman Tom VanBlaricom said. "With the closing of Clifton Elementary School, venues like this help keep Clifton together as a community."
The event, sponsored by the Clifton Betterment Association (CBA), will run from noon to 5 p.m. in Clifton Town Park, on Main Street between Chapel and Chestnut Streets in Clifton.
KidFest will feature a video arcade truck, kids games, arts and crafts and a moon bounce. Many of Clifton's businesses will have tables with games. Teen drama students will be acting it up, and students of Pat Sommer's Rock Shop will perform an acoustic show featuring rock and roll songs from the 50's to today.
Admission is $5; children under 2 are free.
CBA is the civic association dedicated to improving the Clifton area. It is staffed by volunteers, including Girl and Boy Scouts. Membership is available to those who live within the boundaries of the former Clifton Elementary School.
