Williamson County and Cities Health District (WCCHD) is proud to present the 5th Annual Children’s Health Festival. The free event will highlight the importance of good health, nutrition and safety. It also provides a forum to reach the uninsured and underinsured in the area.
This is the fifth year that the Children’s Health Festival has been held at the Dell Diamond, in correlation with the Round Rock Express’ peek at the park day. Admission to the open house is free and will include National Anthem tryouts. In addition, children will be able to run the bases, sign up for the Kids Club, tour the clubhouses, and participate in a scavenger hunt. Season tickets also will be on sale.
For the fifth consecutive year, Melissa Gale of KVUE News will serve as the mistress of ceremonies for the Children’s Health Festival. A resident of Williamson County, Gale volunteers her time to organizations such as the March of Dimes and Down Syndrome Association. She says that she enjoys emceeing the festival because she “cares about Round Rock, and the kids in the area.”
Gale brings her own children to the event because it is fun and provides good information about what is new in the areas of health and nutrition. She says that last year she even found a Chiropractor at the event.
Other returning partners for this year’s festival include Bluebonnet Trails Early Childhood Intervention (ECI), Parent Resources for Infant Development Enrichment (PRIDE), Community Resource Center (Bridges to Growth), Round Rock Health Clinic, Seaton Health Plan, Starry Inc., and Superior Health Plans. The festival will allow parents and kids to learn, good health, nutrition and safety in a fun and entertaining way.
