|Big and little kids like fire trucks|
The rides, food, and game booths are over-priced, but there's still lots of free stuff. Fire, police, government agencies, and community organizations set up informational kid-friendly exhibits.
I volunteered to staff the church's booth on Saturday afternoon. Answering questions about the pre-school and the church, I spoke only when spoken to, like a proper Episcopalian.
Most of the inquiries were about the school. How does one move up the waiting list? [whisper] Back in my day if you were a church member, your kids were given a preference. But you didn't hear it from me. What's that? My services are no longer required? Oh, no-o-o!
