WORTHINGTON - The greenspace near Sailboard Beach in Worthington will once again transform into a kids’ hub Saturday during the Worthington Windsurfing Regatta and Music Festival.

From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 8, carnival-type games and craft activities will keep kids of all ages busy playing and creating, free of charge.

As has been the case the last several years, Client Community Services Inc. (CCSI) staff and clients will lead nine different carnival-style games in the Kids’ Zone.

According to CCSI Executive Director Jeri Schettler, the Kids’ Zone is something CCSI staff and clients enjoy providing to the community as a way to give back.

“We’re looking forward to it,” Schettler said. “It’s always a fun time.”

The Sailboard Beach lawn will also host the A-OK (Art, Optimist, Kiwanis) Club craft tent. The Worthington High School club will solicit help from the middle school’s VOKK (Volunteer Optimist, Kiwanis Kids) Club.

According to A-OK Advisor Jenn Buccholz, kids of all ages are welcome to visit the craft tent for free art-based activities. This year’s activities will be all about paint: painted rocks, painted terra cotta flower pots and face painting.

Buchholz called the craft tent a fun experience for not only kids, but their parents.

“It’s a good experience for (kids and parents) to create something together,” she said. “Instead of being in an art classroom with 30 other students it’s a one-on-one experience with their parents.”*
