The ninth annual Village Fest, an event to celebrate young children is set for April 27 from 12:30 to 5 p.m. at Walworth Elementary School.

This year's free community event is sponsored by the Walworth Elementary School's Community Outreach Committee. The Walworth-Fontana Rotary Club and United States Gypsum (USG) fund the event.

The festival also has received funding from the Walworth business community, including Walworth State Bank, MPC, Kikkoman, First Banking Center, the Rauland Agency and the Walworth Parent's Club.

This year's festival will feature a child-centered theme "It's a Beautiful Day in the Village of Walworth" as a special activity-based learning salute for "The Week of the Young Child."

The main attraction will be an appearance from Mr. McFeeley from the "Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood" television show. McFeeley will entertain all attendees during three free shows.

Children also will have the opportunity to participate in a number of make-and-take sessions sponsored by various parents and community volunteers. Each child will be able to experience hands-on learning through art activities, projects, games and music.

A special picnic lunch will be served to all children.

Additionally, this year's fest will allow parents to sign up their children for local programs and activities such as Walworth Baseball, the Big Foot Soccer Association, Big Foot Wolves football and Li'l Chiefs basketball.

Walworth Memorial Library will also have a special booth.
