If your kids like Spiderman, Princess Leia, Veggie Tales or Diego, you should know… Today (March 5) through Sunday at 4 p.m. is KIDSFEST! in the Iowa State Fairgrounds Varied Industries Building. There’s snacks, entertainment, crafts, competitions, scavenger hunt and more! What fun!

It’s a fun way to let kids run around & blow off steam indoors. AND the ticket price ($7 each, or free for ages 2 and younger) goes to Children & Families of Iowa to help at-risk families! (You can get $2 off coupons at Fareway or Veridian Credit Union.)

Courtney Tompkins has been part of the DMU marketing team since Nov. 2005 and loves promoting a school she believes in so thoroughly. Proud daughter and patient of DMU alumni, Courtney knows, first-hand, that Des Moines University is doing a world of good. A fan of all outdoor festivals, fruity drinks and nearly all edibles, she has a hard time narrowing down her list of favorite places to go and things to do but lists the Iowa State Fair as an all-time fave. She loves her 8-minute commute to DMU from Urbandale, a suburb of Des Moines. She and husband Tyler are owned by three large dogs, Tonka, Tucker and Tank.
