Barnyard Bash a Success

First Choice America hosted its annual Cool Kids Fun Days with a theme of “Barnyard Bash”.  During the 4 day event, children were entertained with inflatable amusements and games.  Each child received a goody bag, and were treated to hot dogs, freeze pops and popcorn. Local radio station, FROGGY, was on hand for a Live Action Broadcast. FROGGY brought Mister Froggy, who was joined by Kenny the Kangaroo, WTOV9’s Snowbird and a loveable cow. The festive atmosphere was topped off with great prizes, which included baskets of toys, Kennywood tickets, and Washington Wild Things tickets. 
During these fun days, safety lessons were taught by local police, sheriff, and fire departments.  Chester and Weirton events presented a canine officer show with the local deputies and police force, while the Steubenville kids learned lessons in drinking and driving through impaired goggles. Wheeling and Weirton also had their fire departments bring smokehouses to teach the children fire safety.
The Barnyard Bash was brought to local neighborhoods in Chester, Steubenville, Wheeling and Weirton.  All four days were successful, which was measured by the smiles on the children’s faces!
