LACASA’s Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Council will hold its annual CAP Kids’ Fair on Saturday, June 4, and Sunday, June 5, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Pinckney’s Art in the Park Festival.

“We are so excited to bring this fun and free event to Livingston County families,” said Holly Naylor, CAP council coordinator. “We want to make sure that families have a way to connect with area agencies and resources, while at the same time enjoying an entertaining day outside together.”

This year’s CAP Kids’ Fair will again feature free ice cream while supplies last, performances by magician Buddy Moorehouse at 2 p.m. on Saturday and 1 p.m. on Sunday, and a Saturday visit from one of Livingston County Sheriff’s Mounted Division horses.

The CAP Kids’ Fair hosts an interactive play zone, with a building block table, a reading spot, and photo props for family pictures.

A Pirate Treasure Hunt, introduced last year, will be back. This gives families an opportunity to visit each CAP Kids’ Fair exhibitor in order to earn a raffle ticket.

“We have some wonderful raffle prizes for the Pirate Treasure Hunt this year,” said Naylor. “A $100 Visa gift card, a ‘Day in Hell’ gift basket, an acoustic guitar, and many more prizes will be given out.”

Families also can enjoy Art in the Park festivities, which feature original and unique art, entertainment, and lots of food and drink options. Art in the Park is held in downtown Pinckney.

Free arts and crafts will be available from each of the CAP Kids’ Fair exhibitors, who provide important health, safety, and well-being information for fair attendees.

Exhibitors for the 2016 fair include the CAP Council, Great Start Livingston, LESA, Early On, the Livingston County Department of Public Health, the Livingston County Department of Health and Human Services, Family and Community Services, the Livingston County Sheriff’s Mounted Division, and the Salvation Army.
