The United Way of Marathon County is inviting families to a new free festival. Community Fest 2013 features the the United We Can food sculpture competition along with dozens of activities for children.
Last year, the 21 sculptures built by organizations and businesses for United We Can contained more than 10 tons of food that was donated to area food pantries after the event.
The festival is held Saturday, September 21 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the expo building at Marathon Park in Wausau.
Children's crafts and activities will take place in Eastgate Hall. Children's entertainment includes a story teller, a DJ, cheer and dance performances, and a chance to get up close and personal with some wild animals from Nature's Niche.
Live entertainment will fill the Expo Building all day and booths will feature organizations and agencies that provide information and support for individuals and families across Marathon County. People can have their blood pressure taken by RSVP volunteers or pick up materials and information about services in our community.
