A Focus on Fun

Family Focus Center Arts and Science Festival

What's a better way to serve the youth in our community? Show them a good time, of course. And what's one way to do that? By taking them to the Zia Family Focus Center's Arts & Science Festival, happening on Saturday, May 16, from 10am to 2pm. The center itself provides a safe, creative space for kids with after-school programs aimed at enrichment and positive youth development. So by partaking in such activities as face painting, a life-sized board game, carnival games, karate demonstrations and more, you're basically helping the children, while also having some good, old-fashioned fun. 'Cause why not?

The event also features dancers, jugglers, live music and food trucks. And before you start reaching for that wallet, know that the event is completely free to attend. Though you will have to pay for food if your stomach starts growling. But I'm sure you knew that. The center is located at 441 Monroe NE, and you can head to if you want to get more deets. PS: There's arts and crafts, so it's as good an opportunity as any to get those creative juices flowing. Just saying.
