Get Kidz Fit Fest at Fair Park

-

Here’s an awesome f lex for the whole family. This 12th annual outing kicks off with a social run/walk around Fair Park before amping up the energy with even more physical fun. Drop by Fitstop stations to do rock climbing, scramble across an obstacle course, or try out basketball, golf, tennis, volleyball, soccer and even Zumba. According to organizers, 49 percent of Dallas County children are classified as overweight or obese, higher than the state and national averages. The Kidz Fit Fest, which drew 4,000 people last year, aims to help North Texans find ways to develop healthy habits that they can easily add to their daily routines. That includes eating better: Guests can learn about nutrition through cooking demonstrat­ions, and each family will receive a free bag of fruits and vegetables from the North Texas Food Bank.
