Plan for Fun at the 4-H Fair & Carnival at Frying Pan Farm Park, August 2-5!



The 70th Annual Fairfax County 4-H Fair and Carnival returns to Frying Pan Farm Park from August 2-5. The event offers livestock and dog demonstrations, 4-H exhibits, fair food, carnival rides, games, vendors, live entertainment, and more. There is a free concert Thursday night with The Mulligan Brothers (Americana Folk Rock) at 7:30pm. Don’t miss Big Truck Night on Friday 5-7:30pm or the Tractor Pull with children’s games on Saturday 4-6pm. The park is offering more fun food options than ever!

Visit the website for full schedules and ticket information. And note that Unlimited Ride Wristbands are available for Thursday or Friday 10am-3pm — purchase through August 1. Parking is free Thursday and Friday, and $10 per vehicle on Saturday and Sunday.

This post is sponsored by Frying Pan Farm Park, however, I only promote events, places, and programs that I genuinely believe in and think would appeal to KFDC readers.

Giveaway: Enter for a Chance to See an Advance Screening of Early Man!



Here’s a chance to catch a sneak preview of a new family movie — and discover a battle for the ages! Early Man, the latest film from Summit Entertainment, opens in theaters on Friday, February 16, and I have TEN “Admit Four” passes up for grabs to attend an advance screening on Saturday, February 10, at AMC Mazza Gallerie in Chevy Chase!

From the award winning “tribe” behind Chicken Run and Wallace & Gromit comes Early Man! Set at the dawn of time, when dinosaurs and woolly mammoths roamed the earth, Early Man tells the story of how one brave caveman unites his tribe against a mighty enemy and saves the day!

Get an extra chance to win by entering on the KidFriendly DC Facebook Page, too. This giveaway will run through Sunday, February 4, 2018.
