CT Kids Fair is Fun for Kids of ALL Ages
East Hampton, CT— January 27, 2020 — Jenks Productions LLC announced the return of the 16th Annual CT Kids Fair to Hartford. The fair is taking place at the Connecticut Convention Center on February 8th and 9th. Presenting sponsors for this year’s show are the Harte Auto Group and iHeartMedia.
Entrance to the show is $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. Admission for children includes one free amusement ride. Attendees will enjoy presentations by artists, gymnasts, dancers and more. Scheduled entertainment and activities are geared to attract enthusiasts of ALL ages. David Garrity of Magic and Beyond will present his “Magic of Illusions.” Animal lovers will delight at the presentations at Bwana Jim’s Wildlife Show. John Higby—the Yo-Yo Guy, is sure to impress by dazzling the crowd with his wildly entertaining tricks.
“Because we know that the average family or group that attends this show range from 1 year old up to Grandma and Grandpa’s age, we really focus on diversifying our vendors and especially our entertainment. Older kids and tweens or teens love the wildlife show, magician and yo-yo presentation. Little kids never tire of playing on the rides- so just as we have had in the past, there are plenty of amusement rides. Kids admission price includes one free ride.” Well known vendors such as the Boston Red Sox, Cabela’s, Hartford Yard Goats and Mystic Aquarium will all be present with exciting displays and giveaways.
Wesley Jenks, Vice President of Jenks Productions, has some suggestions for attending the expo. “Parking is convenient at the CT Convention Center. Regardless of the weather, you can find a spot in the adjacent garage. Wear comfortable shoes and get there early so that you can sidestep crowds and see the full event listing. You won’t want to miss anything.” He added, “Bring cash with you. ATM’s are also available, but for the sake of time, just drop by your bank’s ATM on your way to the show so that you are ready to head straight in when you arrive.” This year’s small business vendor list is stacked with face painters, balloon artists, and retailers specializing in products for kids and families. There is surely something for everyone.
Jenks Productions uses modern techniques combined with traditional formats to produce top notch trade shows, expos and events that increase customer visibility, boost sales and expand brand recognition. Trade shows remain an integral component to effectively market businesses within the wedding industry, home improvement industry and more.
