WVU Medicine Children's will hold its 18th annual Kids Fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 9, at the Morgantown Mall.

The event, which has been voted the area’s “Friendliest Family Event,” will focus on helping kids get on track now to make healthy lifestyle choices for a lifetime of good health.

This year’s fair, the largest in the event’s history, is themed “Be an Active All-Star.” Many of the fair’s 60 tables, in a kid-friendly way, will teach children daily health habits. Puppets will demonstrate how to properly brush and floss. Children will learn how to make smart, nutritious food choices, and they'll be encouraged to get moving and stay active.

Kids will learn about the dangers of tobacco use and how to be good stewards of the environment. Many exhibitors will showcase safety practices.

Kids are encouraged to attend the event wearing their favorite active gear or to dress up as their favorite athlete.

Many well-known athletes will be featured at the event. WVU collegiate athletes will make appearances throughout the day.
