The celebration will culminate Saturday, April 12, with free activities for families in Sahalee Park from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. A parade kicks off the day, led by the JCMS Band, drum majors and the Madras High School JROTC Color Guard, followed by parents and children as they walk to the Library and back to the park.

Participants with strollers, bicycles and tricycles are being encouraged to decorate them or themselves to the theme “Art In The Park.” Judges will award prizes.

After the parade, Sahalee Park will have lots of activities for our youngest artists to express their creative talents. Entertainment will include music and dancing by local groups. There will also be drawings for great prizes for children and families.

“Young children and their families depend on high-quality education and care, which help children get a great start and bring lasting benefits to our community. Week of the Young Child is a time to recognize the importance of early learning, and to celebrate the teachers and policies that bring early childhood education to young children,” said Morton.
