SAN ANGELO – To accommodate 5,000 families with children, a place such as Unidad Park was the perfect site as 38 games and play booths ranging from a dunking booth, water balloon toss to basketball toss were set up on a sprawling, 7.3 acres for the 28th annual Children’s Fair held Sunday afternoon, April 22 from 12 noon to 5 p.m.

 “We have every game for kids that is imaginable,” said Victor Gutiérrez, Program Director for Healthy Families San Angelo. 

Besides kids’ activities there was also a talent show. One girl duo: Brooke Herry and Camryn Doan teamed up to sing a cover song, titled: “Someday” by Milo Manheim.

Conexión asked the girls how they felt about singing before a live audience to which Brooke responded, “I was nervous at first, but I got used to it.” Camryn and Brooke both Lincoln Middle School students, practiced for for three weeks before their debut on Sunday.

Angelo Catholic School Eagle Choruster Band was another group that participated in the talent show. ACS was under the direction of Edward Hernandez.

For such a large popular family event as this, volunteers came from Goodfellow Air Force Base, Angelo State University football team, ASU Honor Students and ASU JR ROTC.

Healthy Families’ fundraiser keeps 10 percent of the money while it gives 90 percent back to the vendors.

“Thank you San Angelo for supporting Healthy Families and the Children’s Fair,” concluded Gutiérrez.
