The KEDT Kids Festival kicks off

The event aims to inspire a back-to-school spirit as children engage in learning activities while having fun at the same time!

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The 4th annual KEDT Children’s Festival kicked off Saturday afternoon.

The event aims to inspire a back-to-school spirit as children engage in learning activities while having fun at the same time!

25-30 organizations joined the festival to provide hands-on activities for all attendees. During the day, about 1,600 children passed through.

KEDT was proud to present new activities this year. One of the first was a bird flight program where children could learn about animals. The birds presented came from San Antonio.

There were also some familiar faces, like everyone’s favorite aardvark Arthur, who made a celebrity appearance and met some fans.

3NEWS spoke with KEDT President and CEO Don Dunlap about the importance of hosting events like these for our community.

“A lot of kids don’t have the opportunity to go to the San Antonio Zoo, so we bring a lot of those activities to kids in South Texas with our Kids Festival,” Dunlap replied.

Event officials said one of their goals was to teach children about outdoor activities, such as planting in gardens and spotting wildlife, since most children spend a lot of time outdoors. inside these days.

If you missed Saturday, don’t worry! The festival is held every year to prepare children to return to the classroom.
