Annual Free Family Fun Fair returns to Eagle this weekend

Frosty February frequently finds folks fretting about everything from fitness to finances. The Free Family Fun Fair provides a much-needed break.

The Eagle Valley Dental Winter Free Family Fun Fair returns to Eagle this Saturday, Feb. 8, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Parents love this annual event because their young ones can let off steam in a huge arena filled with activities specially geared toward the interests of the valley's juniors. The Eagle Valley Dental Free Family Fun Fair is hosted by Always Mountain Time radio stations, and underwritten by Western Eagle County Metropolitan Recreation District, the town of Gypsum and the town of Eagle. The five hours of full-on free family activities are geared to children ages 2 to 12. The event takes place indoors at the Eagle River Center at the Eagle County Fairgrounds.

Kids will enjoy a climbing wall sponsored by Taco Bell, two zorb balls, three bouncy inflatables and a four-person bungee jump. Also on tap: Dinosaur Ridge fossils, face painting, balloon sculptures, emergency vehicles, demonstrations and more.

Eagle Valley Dental will host a coloring contest during the fair and one lucky kid will win a brand new bike worth $500. Mountain Pedaler in Eagle will fit the winning child with the correct size bike.

Fair-go'ers can also enter to win a $500 gift card from American Furniture Warehouse by uploading their favorite photo with the Eagle Valley Dental tooth fairy to the free Always Mountain Time mobile app. Food and beverages will be available for sale, including Girl Scout cookies.

The Free Family Fun Fair in Eagle is sponsored by community partners Mountain Family Health Centers, Taco Bell, Wells Fargo Bank, Bighorn Toyota and these Always Mountain Time Media radio stations: KSKE 'Ski Country', KKCH 'The LIFT FM' and KQSE.
