With activities ranging from duck ponds to hula hoops, the BYUSA Children’s Festival, a part of the Homecoming celebration, will offer an evening of fantasy and fun for local parents and their children.
The festival is in keeping with the family-oriented theme of Homecoming, said Dani Davis, Homecoming program director.
Booths manned by BYUSA volunteers will be open from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the ELWC Ballroom. Tickets for each booth will be 20 cents, and prizes of goldfish, candy and toys will be awarded to the winners.
The highlight of the festival will be the annual Baby Contest, which will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the ELWC Garden Court. Contestants will be divided into two age groups: children 0 to 18 months and children 19 months to three years. There is no fee to enter the contest.
Last year, 35 babies were entered in the contest. This year, babies will compete for prizes in most original crawl, best spirit of the Y, best hair/no hair, chubbiest cheeks and best baby tricks, according to a BYUSA press release.
Noel Challis, program director over dances and the baby contest, said a lot of work went into this homecoming, and they hope everyone comes.
