A family fair that won't end in a sugar rush
Fried dough and roller coasters don’t sit well with babies, which is why we shy away from fairs. But the Texas Veggie Fair has caught our attention. Taking place on October 20 at Reverchon Park, the fair will be packed with all things healthy: free food samples, live music, games, and eco-friendly everything (including natural handmade skincare, fair-trade jewelry, etc.). But what we’re really psyched for is the Veggie Village, a healthy haven where kids can learn about food, make recyclable crafts (for $10), practice yoga, hear stories, and get their faces painted (with non-toxic vegan paint, of course). There will be also be cooking demos, an enclosed Lil’ Veggie Garden for babies ages 2 and under, and a separate bounce house for tots 5 and under. The fair runs from 11am to 6pm; admission is free.
