The 29th Annual ICES Children’s Fair will take place Saturday at the Mother Lode Fairgrounds.

The event, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., will feature a variety of childrens’ activities, including face painting, seed planting, art projects and gymnastics. The fair is designed to acquaint families with local services and resources.

Among the exhibitors will be the California Highway Patrol, which will demonstrate the proper use of car seats; the Amador-Tuolumne Community Action Agency’s Head Start and Mentoring Works programs; and the American Red Cross.

The Children’s Fair is free, though attendees can make donations to support ICES. Lunch is available for $2 and will include a bean and cheese burrito, fruit, chips and milk.

ICES stands for Infant/Child Enrichment Services, a nonprofit organization that provides child care and support services to families in Tuolumne and Mariposa counties.
