Kids Fest Date: Friday, August 25, 2017 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. An event that is all about kids! You are not going to want to miss this amazing night in Downtown Newark. Every business/organization will represent a different children/teen book and will have activities or characters related to that book. Kids will start at the DNA tent (located on the West side of the Square across from Barrel and Boar) and receive their passport for the evening. They will take it around to the various businesses to have it stamped. At each location, they will be entered into a drawing for that businesses' book AND if they turn in their passport at the end of the night, they will be entered to win a grand prize! The entire event is free and fun for the entire family! Inflatables, face painting, chalk art, caricature artist, and much more! Oh, and The Midland Theatre is showing the movie, Hook, at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. - $5 students and $6 for adults (free for Licking County Seniors)!!
