ISLAND COUNTY FAIR UPDATE: Kids can get in free by joining parade

Children are invited to show their support for Good Cheer Food Bank by dressing up as nutritious food items and marching with the Good Cheer group in the Island County Fair Parade on Saturday, Aug. 16.

Every costumed child will receive a free admission pass to the fair that day from Good Cheer staff, plus a gift certificate for $10 good for merchandise at Good Cheer Thrift Stores.

"This is an opportunity for kids to be creative and have fun making costumes to show off their favorite foods, while increasing awareness of hunger issues in our community and the world," said Good Cheer's executive director Kathy McLaughlin.

Entry forms are available at both Good Cheer Thrift Stores in Langley and Clinton. Children and parents should meet in front of Good Cheer in Langley at 9 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 16. Parents are requested to accompany their child in the parade. More details are available on Good Cheer's Web site at
