The 23rd annual Children's Fair is set to bring entertainment and information to Imperial Valley families Saturday.
The event, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Bucklin Park in El Centro, will offer booths, food, games, walk-around characters and, most important, information for families.
"The purpose is to bring the community together and have all the resources in the Valley come together to demonstrate what kind of help we have for families," said Marcela Villalobos, administrative assistant at the Imperial County Child Abuse Prevention Council.
Villalobos is helping coordinate the Children's Fair.
Villalobos said organizers are expecting a crowd of about 35,000, about the same number as last year's fair.
"We hope everyone will attend because it's really fun," said Villalobos.
Some of the agencies that will be at the fair include the Imperial County Office of Education, Imperial Valley Regional Occupational Program, Center for Family Solutions, Imperial County Behavioral Health Services.
