The 22nd annual Children's Fair is set for Saturday, again with the goal of entertaining and educating youths of all ages.
The fair will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Bucklin Park in El Centro.
The Children and Parents Council and the Imperial County Office of Education are sponsoring the family event, with help from the El Centro Kiwanis Club.
Yvette Garcia, executive director of the CAP Council, said the event was formulated so children and adults could educate themselves about child abuse prevention while enjoying the vast entertainment.
Local bands, mariachis, dancers, drill teams and jazz bands will provide music.
A petting zoo and pony and camel rides will be offered.
Law enforcement officials will be on hand and costumed characters and clowns will stroll around the park. This year's event will offer a magic show.
