OGLESBY — An annual Summer Fun Fest favorite of both children and parents alike is Kids Party in the Park.

Sponsored by IVCH Oglesby Family Medicine, this free event will be from 1 to 3 p.m. June 29. The theme this year is "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and will feature a variety of color-themed activities and treats.

The activity-packed afternoon is geared for kids of all ages. Activities at various “Creation Stations” will include face painting, tie-dying, rainbow-themed arts and crafts, and glitter tattoos.

Chicago magician John Measner and his traveling magic show will present three shows at 1:30, 2:30 and 3:30 p.m. Measner is a professional magician and illusionist with 25 years of experience.

The sound of tiny hammers will once again fill the air as Peru Home Depot will be on site hosting a workshop. This activity has proven to be one of the most popular with kids and parents alike.

The event is free to participants and is made possible by the generosity of local sponsor IVCH Oglesby Family Medicine. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
