April 21: HPP Children's Fair

Hudson Preschool Parents will bring back its perennial community bash for a 33rd running. The group will host the HPP Children’s Fair on Saturday, April 21, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at East Woods School, 120 N. Hayden Pkwy.

HPP President Kristin Haid said the event draws 300-400 attendees each year and concludes the celebration of the nationally recognized Week of the Young Child, in which youngsters and their parents have access to activities, special events and business tours around the community.

At the fair, guests can visit tables to get information on more than 60 local organizations from dance and gymnastics studios to city safety forces. There also will be games, activities and entertainment geared toward young children throughout the morning.

“HPP has been sponsoring the Children’s Fair since 1985 as a way of providing information and entertainment to our members and the general public,” Haid said. “This special event is the perfect way for Hudson-area businesses and organizations to get the word out to attendees about their goods or services.”

According to Haid, there is no cost to attend the fair and organizations do not pay for booth space, although HPP does sell sponsorships that provide more visibility. Funds raised are put back into the group’s general fund to pay for events, activities and speakers.

Along with the annual fair, HPP hosts a membership picnic every August and plans dozens of events and field trips to places like the fire station or seasonal activities such as apple picking and riding the Polar Express.

“We always have something going on, so it is a great way for moms and dads of young children to better get to know other families in the community,” she said.

Haid said that even though the HPP Children’s Fair is geared toward the younger set, it is open to the community.

“It’s a lot of fun, a great way to spend a couple of hours and come out and learn about different activities in the community and to talk face-to-face with businesses,” she said. “Many organizations have giveaways at their booths, and kids have a good time having their faces painted and getting a balloon. It’s a carnival-type atmosphere.”
